Tequila ArteNOM presents regional tequila selections of distinct altitude, heritage, agave cultivation, and distillation technique. These specially-curated expressions represent the unique, personal craft of their master distillers: truly making an ART of their NOM.
At 6,788 feet above sea level in the remote mountain town of Jesús María, Felipe Camarena masterfully crafts this bright, aromatic tequila from stressed hillside agave plants grown in tequila’s highest-altitude agave region. Felipe’s DestileríaEl Pandillo is arguably one of the most forward-thinking, innovative and sustainable distilleries in the business. After select harvesting, the agave plants are slowly roasted in brick ovens and macerated intact with their fibers for a richer, fuller flavor. Following fermentation with rainwater, Felipe slowly distills ArteNOM Seleccion Blanco Tequila in small copper pot stills and aerates the spirit prior to bottling.
