The notable smoothness and richness of our award-winning Tequilas start well before the formal distilling process – in the valleys of rich, black volcanic rock soil of Jalisco, Mexico. We allow our agaves to grow to full maturity before hand-harvesting them.
For all of our Tequilas that are aged, our in-house coopers hand-craft oak barrels that help create the rich, round flavors for which we are known. The oak used to make our barrels comes from a closely guarded source because of the unique taste it allows us to develop. Our aging process can go well beyond industry standards – up to five times longer – resulting in unrivaled smoothness.
Only after all of this nurturing, care and development – from soil and harvest to aging and blending – can our Tequila go before the uncompromising Becherano Family Tasting Council. They personally ensure the remarkable taste of Cantera Negra. They know better than anyone that taste is its own reward.
Our purposefully slow, hands-on approach relies heavily on the experience, character and demanding standards of the Becherano family members, making Cantera Negra Tequilas truly handcrafted and artisanal from start to finish. Our unrivaled taste is the result of our deep, personal engagement and unwavering commitment to quality.
