Discover Our Premium Tequila

Olmeca Altos is a premium 100% agave tequila produced from the Altos highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. The agave grows at 2,100 meters above sea level, ensuring a sweet tequila perfect for cocktail making. 

Once harvested, the agave is cooked in brick ovens for three days until they are juicy and tender for milling. After this, the agave is crushed using the 400-year-old Tahona stone method to achieve a smooth yet pleasant cooked agave flavor and aroma. 

Then, the agave fiber and liquid are fermented with our proprietary yeast. This fermented juice is then distilled in copper stills in small batches, ensuring the highest quality after the whole process.

Smooth, clean and slightly smoky, Altos Reposado is our most awarded tequila. And, on this occasion, is our choice for this champagne and tequila cocktail. Give yourself a treat and celebrate life with a Champagne Margarita!
