VOLCAN DE MI TIERRA AWARDED SILVER AND BRONZE MEDALS AT
THE SAN FRANCISCO WORLD SPIRITS COMPETITION
Renowned in the industry for its integrity and impartiality, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC) has become one of the most respected and influential spirits competitions in the world. Over 2,200 spirits were judged in this year – the most in the competition’s 17 year history. The accolades from SFWSC represent a milestone for Volcan De Mi Tierra which launched just last year as Moet Hennessy’s first tequila.
“It is a real honor to be recognized by SFWSC,” said Volcan Di Mi Tierra’s President and CEO, Trent Fraser. “A tremendous amount of time was spent developing both expressions. We experimented with yeast variations, agave selection and multiple cask maturations before settling on the final blends. We made some bold choices and are thrilled to be considered amongst the best in category.”
Volcan De Mi Terra, which takes its name from the pre-historic volcano that shaped the landscape from which tequila region’s expansive agave fields now grow, is a celebration of provenance and legacy. The hand-crafted spirit pays homage to Jalisco’s unique terroir by blending 100% blue agave from the low- and high-lands – an industry first. Volcan’s distillery sits at the base of the volcano and is home to a distinctive distilling process that combines history and tradition.
Volcan De Mi Tierra Blanco delivers an austere and herbaceous flavor spectrum from the lowlands agave, blended with finesse, citrus and floral notes of the highlands. The Blanco can be enjoyed mixed into cocktails or served neat. Volcan De Mi Tierra Cristalino is an Anejo, aged for many months with different cask finishes, with the color extracted. While a clear liquid, the taste still delivers incredible depth, richness and complexity of an aged tequila, which is best appreciated neat or over ice.
Volcan De Mi Tierra’s Cristalino and Blanco were also recently reviewed by the Beverage Testing Institute and both received great marks. The Cristalino achieved 93 points, awarding it a Gold Medal and naming it the “2018 Best Cristalino Tequila” while the Blanco achieved 84 points, with a bronze medal, and received the Beverage Testing Institute’s recommendation.
Volcan De Mi Tierra Blanco and Volcan De Mi Tierra Cristalino are available to taste at fine restaurants and bars that respect the craft of the cocktail. For more information and updates please follow @VolcanTequila on Instagram.
