  The agave is halved & quartered (cogollo-removed) agave steam-roasted without pressure in brick kiln ovens with 36hr roast that includes a 6hr pre-roast to melt-off bitters and 6hr cool-down.
It is fermented in stainless steel using an indigenous yeast strain that is taken from the agave field that has a presence of lime, orange & pomelo citrus pollens.
