For over 130 years, Corazon have been producing tequila. Distilled in the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, the award-winning Corazon Tequila is made from local blue Weber agave by a group of artisans who hold themselves to the highest standards.
The family owned distillery, Casa San Matias, is nestled in the Highlands of Jalisco is where owner Carmen Villarreal oversees the team and the creation of all Corazon Tequilas. Every part of the process happens here, from the agave harvest to the bottling of the spirit, keeping true to the storied craft of tequila and allowing for innovations that ensure Carazon minimize their footprint on the land.
Casa San Matias was the first tequila distillery to participate in the United Nations' carbon footprint program. They are committed to looking for ways to enhance the traditional process with environmentally sound practices, such as an onsite biodigester which breaks down organic waste created in the Corazon distilling process and transforming it into a source of renewable energy and fertilizer.
Nose: Petrichor (the scent of rain on dry earth), fragrant lime and an organic, sweet agave lead with prickles of white pepper underneath. Baked pineapple, roasted jalapeno, and tangerine zest follow. Very complex.
Palate: The palate has an iodine mineral tone and a creamy texture that fills the mouth and leads into an invigorating, spicy finish.
