Topanito Blanco is a clear premium Tequila, made 100% from Blue Weber Agave which has been growing to maturity for at least seven years. It is this hand-selected agave that defines the pure and authentic agave aroma of Topanito Blanco.
Topanito Blanco presents notes of fresh apple and roasted agave on the nose, with a perfect balance between citrus notes and sweetness. The stronger proof of 40% Alc. vol. compared to most Tequilas lets Topanito transport the agave aroma with great intensity. Yet, Topanito Blanco is amazingly smooth on the palate, leaving a citric and refreshing mouthfeel behind.
The agave hearts are steam-cooked in order to transform the carbohydrates into fermentable sugar. For Topanito, a major share of the agaves are cooked in thick-walled brick ovens. This slow process takes at least 36 hours, and results in a pure, sweet agave flavour of the final Tequila.
The agaves are shredded and squeezed to extract the juice. Next, the juice is fermented using natural yeast. For Topanito, the fermentation takes 48 to 60 hours, in order to access the full, splendid aroma of the agave. Many Tequilas produced for the mass markets are, in contrast, fermented for only 10 to 12 hours, which results in a weaker agave aroma.
Topanito Blanco is a perfect choice for classic Tequila cocktails such as Margarita, Tommy's Margarita, Paloma and Tequila Sunrise. Do not miss to sip Topanito Blanco neat, to experience the full flavour of 100% Agave.
