Founded by long-time agave cultivator and distiller David Ravandi, 123 Organic Tequila is an artisan producer of certified organic tequilas made from estate-grown lowland agaves Northeast of Guadalajara in Jalisco, Mexico.
Ten-year-old, slowly ripened agaves are cooked for two days in traditional stone ovens to concentrate flavor, then double-distilled using a small-batch process. In keeping with its principles of organic production and sustainability, the distillery and agave farm minimize soil and water impacts and farm and harvest entirely without pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, or large-scale mechanical equipment. Each bottle of 123 Organic Tequila is crafted from recycled glass and labeled with recycled paper and natural soy inks.
Beyond all of these elements, though, the distillery’s philosophy shines in the liquid itself: a paradigmatic expression of pure agave flavor.
Inspired by the famed masked wrestlers of Mexico, tequilero David Ravandi has created 123 El Luchador Blanco Organic Tequila, a unique distill-proof Organic Blanco tequila. This deep, velvety 110-proof spirit is favored by mixologists as a foundation for building authentic, classic cocktails and for enjoying as an agave digestif. 123 El Luchador Blanco Organic Tequila’s journey began at 4,200 ft. in the heartland of Tequila where agaves flourish in the iron-rich soils of our certified organic estate. Here, El Luchador is distilled using artisanal methods and produced and packaged with the utmost respect for the environment.
Appropriately racy on the nose, El Luchador is brimming with agave, lemon pepper, and fresh, sea salt aromas. Rich and powerful, just as you’d expect from a 110-proof spirit, but also silky-sweet with notes of nougat, coconut and agave flavors that build on the finish, offering white pepper, lemongrass, and soothing touches of mint as they fade. Creamy and complex, it strikes a balance between sweet and savory that brings contemporary cocktails to life.
Like the unique traditions of the luchador, our tequila is a unique, distill-proof expression created with the tequila connoisseur in mind.
