Proof66 Notes

AGV 400 tequilas are made from Blue Weber agave matured for between 7 and 10 years before harvesting. They are cooked in traditional stone ovens for 33 hours and then rested for 24. It is distilled to a 110 proof, then rectified in what they regard as a secret and proprietary process in order to achieve better aroma and flavor. The name AGV 400 stands for "agave" with the number 400 a reference to the meso-American goddess Mayahuel, who is associated with the maguey (agave) plant and the production of "pulque" (the fermented precursor of tequila and a popular drink both pre- and post-Columbus). She is said to have had 400 breasts to feed her 400 centzon totochin--the rabbits associated with drunkenness.

AGV 400 tequilas are certified kosher by Vaad Hakashrut of the Azkenazi Community of Mexico.

AGV 400 Blanco is the un-aged expression from the label. They say it "brilliant silver tones" with "discreet but bold tones of mint and black pepper."
(From the marketing presentation from Hacienda de los Gonzalez)

In their 2011 review, the Beverage Testing Institute noted the blanco has "very intriguing," particularly in the aroma where they sensed notes of roasted peanuts and peppers and date cookies.
