LA FINCA DE GOYA TEQUILA
This small, picturesque farm is surrounded by clean rivers, volcanic mountains and rich blue agave fields in the geographic centre of Mexico. Our agave fields are located on the same latitude as Hawaii, rising almost 1500 meters above the sea within a UNESCO world heritage site. Fresh winds carrying oxygen and moisture from the Pacific Ocean combined with year-round damp ground give our plants a blue-green, almost turquoise color and allows us to create flawless crystal-clear tequila.
We treat the earth of our organic fields in ways inspired by old Spanish traditions and without chemicals. We managed to eliminate the traditional harsh taste of tequila by moving our plants from the volcanic grounds around the volcano to soft earth patches in between sugar cane fields. The earth here contains more water and oxygen and less sulphur and volcanic minerals. This gives Goya Tequila a unique and elegant taste never seen before. The quality is never compromised by adding sugars or flavouring ingredients.
The production methods we use in Mexico are the same as those used by organic farmers in Catalonia, Spain. This is the same area that supplies the culinary elite with some of the world’s best local products. We combined agricultural knowledge from both Mexico and Spain. We experimented on similar pieces of land located on different continents to understand local materials and how microclimates impacted their behaviour and tastes. We believe we have found the perfect land and recipe for agave farming and tequila production.
This level of attention and perfectionism is something that can only be achieved on a small scale. Goya Tequila is something that should be shared with the people you appreciate the most, in small portions.
