Deforestation is a problem in the Oaxacan Region — one of the reasons all the wood we use is from certified wood farmers.
This process takes approximately 7-10 days.
Our Joven is then bottled, or put in barrels to make our Reposado & Añejo. Each bottle is hand corked, labeled, and numbered.
Our barrels are sourced from Kelvin Cooperage, a family-run business since 1963.
