Wine Enthusiast 89 points - A touchpoint for the lush, gorgeous reposado expression, the blanco is herbal and astringent, with mineral notes and touches of vanilla and coconut. It finishes spicy, all fiery cinnamon and clove. - K.N.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - (Great Value)- The seductive nose of caramelized agave doesn’t disappoint. On the palate, this tequila is all roasted agave, with subtler notes of fresh herbs and baking spices. The finish is black peppercorns and a lingering whiff of vanilla. (Mar 2015)
Clear with a pure, platinum sheen, Familia Camarena 100% Blue Agave Silver Tequila shows notes of rich toasted agave and fresh green herbs. Exceptionally soft and smooth on the palate, our Silver Tequila exhibits hints of sweet vanilla, savory brown spices and black pepper with a graceful, warming finish.
Two and a half centuries after co-founding the Mexican town of Arandas, today's epicenter of highland Tequila production, legendary Tequila-producing family Camarena has unveiled Familia Camarena Tequila, a new premium Tequila crafted from 100 percent Blue Agave. A testament to the regional flavors of the Los Altos Highlands, the new Familia Camarena Tequila is a culmination of six Camarena generations whose influence on the refinement of quality Tequila production has shaped the standards of modern-day premium Tequila.
Available in two expressions, Silver and Reposado, Familia Camarena Tequila showcases only traditional methods of Agave preparation, fermentation and distillation to produce 100 percent Blue Agave Tequila. Cultivated in the highest elevations of the Los Altos Highlands region of Jalisco where mineral-rich volcanic soil and a temperate climate affords greater flavor maturity, Agave farming for Casa Camarena is overseen by 25-year industry veteran and sixth generation family member, Mauricio Camarena.
|Our heritage in Tequila began more than 250 years ago. Our Spanish ancestors immigrated to Mexico in the early 18th Century and co-founded the town of Arandas in 1761. Long considered the epicenter of artisanal highlands Tequila production, Arandas is home to our family-owned Tequila distillery.
For six generations, we have taken great care in preserving the invaluable resources of this important region, practicing sustainable farming and taking a long-range approach to growing quality agave. As part of our family’s commitment to preserving the ecology of the Los Altos Highlands region, engineers at our distillery invented a system to recycle the vinazas – organic residue from careful distillation – generated through Tequila production . We reuse the vinazas to fertilize the agave fields with organic material , yeast and sugar. For 250 years, our commitment to the land has never wavered.
