We use a 50/50 blend of sweet highland and peppery lowland agaves, from the farms of Potrero Negro and Santa Teresa, respectively. The Jimadores remove the agave leaves, exposing the heart of the plant – the piña. Approximately seven kilograms of piñas are required to produce one liter of Nosotros Tequila.
Our agaves sit in a brick oven for 60 hours, slow cooking. This process softens the piña, making sugar extraction easier during milling.
After cooking, the agave pieces are transported to a milling area for sugar extraction. Here the cooked piñas are crushed in order to release juice that eventually becomes our final product.
The extracted juice is fermented with imported German yeast within large stainless-steel tanks. This natural process for the sugars to transform into alcohol takes 72 hours.
The ferments are then separated by heat and stem in steel stills. We distill twice – first as a smashing process and second as a cleaning process. During this step, the alcohol level reaches roughly 60% and by reverse osmosis, the level is brought down to a more modest 40%.
Blanco is unaged and therefore, finished and bottled following distillation. To make our Reposado, our Blanco is transferred into French Oak barrels where it sits for 11 months. After being aged, the juice is removed from the barrels and bottled as our Reposado.
“Toward the end of my senior year of college in 2015, I was given a challenging prompt for today’s generation: Think of a business idea that has nothing to do with technology.
The assignment had me thinking about “rustic” business models and following a weekend out in LA, the answer was pretty straight forward – it doesn’t get more rustic than tequila. So I booked a flight to Jalisco, Mexico and met with several distilleries in the region. My objective was to come back with something unique and enjoyable. I didn’t come back empty handed.
By graduation day, my good friend, Michael, now Nosotros’ CFO, joined the adventure. With a North Star to bring people together and a loan in our name, we initiated our first small batch production of 168 cases on October 31st, 2016, amounting to 2016 bottles.
The first few months were tough, but in April 2017, everything changed. As we learned more about the industry, we sent our Blanco to the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. In one short, game-changing weekend, we became the first company in history to win the Double Gold and Best Tequila Awards during year one in the market.
Fast forward to today and Nosotros is now a family of ten incredible team members, stands in more than 600 places in California, is the Official Premium Tequila of the Rose Bowl, and we’re not stopping anytime soon! This journey has been a combination of sweat, resiliency and serendipity. We hope you enjoy our juice as much as we do.”
