HAND PICKED AGAVES

Hand picked agaves

Tanteo uses estate grown Blue Weber Agave raised in the fertile soils and subtropical climate of Jalisco’s Cienega region, located in the southeast of the Tequila Lowlands and west of the Tequila Highlands

COOKED IN SMALL BATCHES

Cooked in small batches

After the Pina’s arrive at the distillery, they are packed into brick ovens (hornos) and slowly baked to turn the starches into fermentable sugars

OPEN AIR FERMENTATION

Open air fermentation

Tanteo uses wild and cultivated yeast to ferment the agave juice into a low alcohol, sweet “mosto”

THE INFUSION

The infusion

Distilled mosto is where the story ends for most tequilas. Tanteo spices up the process by infusing real peppers into our tequila, making a final product that goes beyond ordinary

LOCALLY GROWN PRODUCE

Locally grown produce

Tanteo sources fresh Jalapeños, Habaneros and locally roasted Chipotles to use for our artisanal infusions

HAND CUT PEPPERS

Hand cut peppers

Fresh peppers are cut at the distillery and infused both with and without the pith and seeds, creating macerates of varying heat intensities

INFUSED BY HAND

Infused by hand

All infusions are created in our proprietary maceration tank, producing a full extraction of all the pepper’s essence

BLENDED IN SMALL BATCHES

Blended in small batches

Filtered macerates are tasted and blended in a labor intensive process to ensure consistency in the final product

WAX SEAL BY HAND

HANDWRITTEN LABELS

MADE BY REAL PEOPLE
