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 Reposado is aged for 6 months in oak barrels acquiring a golden color. They say the resting period adds flavors of vanilla and orange to the tequila.
