Identity

Volcan de mi Tierra is named after a real volcano that sits in the lowlands of Jalisco, Mexico, “Volcan de Tequila”. 200,000 years ago the tequila volcano erupted, shaping the land and topography of the Jalisco region. That eruption covered the area in rich volcanic soil, making the area ideal for the growth of blue agave. The ash of the volcano created a soil rich in basalt and iron, which gives our tequila its particular taste.

“It was my hope to create a spirit that is truly committed to expressing the heart of the agave and terroir from which it came. This is why—unlike many distilleries—we combine agave from the low-and high-lands and embrace the nuances from each region”

Inspiration

A delicate balance of heritage and modernity transforms our agave into tequila.

The complexity of the Volcan de mi Tierra tequila comes from blending the distinct flavors of the highlands and lowlands agave, bringing together the best of both regions into an extraordinary liquid. Like generations before us, we wait and we watch as the agave sweeten in the sun.

Then, the use of a mampostery oven and slow fermentation in wood tanks combined with state-of the art processes develop a tequila with unparalleled flavor and aroma.
