DeLeon Tequila Diamante - Spirits Worth Raising

DeLeon Tequila Diamante

DeLen Tequila was launched in 2009 and purchased in 2014 by a joint venture between business mogul Brent Hocking, Hip-Hop legend and international style icon Sean Combs and the worlds largest spirits company, Diageo. The ultra premium spirit was first introduced to the US market in 2009, just in time for Cinco de Mayo.DeLen is made from only the finest Blue Weber agave, sourced from the rich earth of the Los Altos Highlands region of Jalisco, in the town of Pursima del Rincn in the Mexican state of Guanajuato. The citys name quite literally means "Purest of the Corner," and is named after the Immaculate Conception.The agaves are hand selected at 6-8 years, and their pias are slow roasted in traditional brick and clay ovens, then ground using traditional mills. This is a meticulous traditional technique. This method, coupled with slow fermentation, is what their master distiller Miguel Cedeo Cruz says contributes an enriched depth and complexity to the agaves natural sweetness, creating a remarkably nuanced character:"Because each agave is unique, once they arrive at the distillery they are cut into halves, thirds or quarters dependent on the size of the particular agave. This is to ensure that we will have even baking in the clay ovens. The central part of the plant, known as the Cogollo, is removed as it adds bitterness to the final product. This isnt a standard industry practice and helps DeLen become a smoother, sweeter, and less-bitter tequila."DeLen Tequila is double distilled using an Alembic-style pot, which Cruz says allows the tequila to retain the unique character acquired during the fermentation process. Although the tequila is chill filtered, DeLen Tequila also does not make its spirit using any of the four chemicals (glycerin, sucrose, oak extract, and caramel) permitted by the CRT (Consejo Regulador Del Tequila). The entire production span, from agave to bottle, takes about a month.The DeLen Diamante Tequila expression is Joven-style tequila, meaning its a blend of unaged and aged spirits. Made from the finest Highland agave and blended with Aejo tequila, its a refined drink with a clean and pure agave-forward profile that comes in a fittingly luxurious perfume-style bottle.Grab one of these artfully-crafted bottles today!
