Founded by long-time agave cultivator and distiller David Ravandi, 123 Tequila is an artisan producer of certified organic tequilas made from estate-grown lowland agaves northeast of Guadalajara in Jalisco, Mexico. Ten-year-old, slowly ripened agaves are cooked for two days in traditional stone ovens to concentrate flavor, then double-distilled using a small-batch process. In keeping with its principles of organic production and sustainability, the distillery and agave farm minimize soil and water impacts and farm and harvest entirely without pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, or large-scale mechanical equipment. Each bottle of 123 Tequila is crafted from recycled glass and labeled with recycled paper and natural soy inks. Beyond all of these elements, though, the distillery's philosophy shines in the liquid itself: A paradigmatic expression of pure agave flavor.
