Mexico is home to an abundance of different spirits – Tequila, Mezcal, Raicilla and many more. These distillates are all products created from this plant, the Agave, all unique in their flavors and aromas.
Curado’s current expressions are: Blue Weber from Arandas, Espadín from Oaxaca and Cupreata from Michoacán.
The agave plant has existed on earth for an estimated 12 million years. Pre-Hispanic Mesoamerican cultures found many uses for the plant: the cooked Piña for food, the dried fibers for rope, clothing and paper, and – perhaps most importantly – the fermented Agave juice (Pulque as it is known in Mexico) as the first alcoholic beverage of the American continent.
It is a miraculous plant, full of life, that spends long years maturing under the Mexican sun. Nourished by the earth’s minerals, the plants absorb this energy, which becomes their life essence.
Curado Tequila is a 100% Blue Agave; Blanco Tequila infused with cooked agave. We are the first company to develop this simple yet unique method of infusions, in fact, we hold a patent of the process.
We take our unaged, additive free Tequila and infuse it with pieces of cooked Agave for extra richness, depth and complexity.1000 liters of the purest Blanco tequila at 100 proof, gently infused with 21 kgs of sweet cooked Agave; steeped for 5 days, to then be lightly filtered and adjusted to 80 % proof for your enjoyment.
Each variety of Agave is cooked using the technique of each respective region and then taken to Jalisco. There we infuse it in the best 100% Blue Agave Tequila from the Highlands of Jalisco region. The proportion of agave to tequila varies in each expression depending on the type of Agave used.
Our entire tequila production process takes place at Los Alambiques distillery, using the knowledge and methods learned at La Alteña Distillery, founded by Don Felipe Camarena Hernández on July 7, 1937. A distillery committed to the quality of tequila and recognized for using artisanal processes for more that 80 year.
Curado Tequila offers a true Mexican, CRT Certified Tequila, suitable for the new consumer, ready for the advanced palate.
It is a new experience, subtler and kinder yet more agave forward that anything you have ever tried before.
Our Blue Weber expression is perfect to make margaritas with less sugar, a great twist to classics such as Palomas or Batangas.
Each animal on the different expressions of Curado represents its land of origin; all of them belong to the magical world of Alebrijes.
Our Alebrijes are a modern form of art and expression from the Mexican artist Pedro Linares, who “saw” these animals carrying him from the world of the living to the world of the dead and back.
Often defined with features that belong to other creatures (wings, tails, patterns and colors), Alebrijes are impossible animals that will take you to unexpected places… just like Curado.
