The ArteNOM line of tequilas are made by different distillers, and specially curated to represent distinct regional expressions that highlight the personal craft of the master distillers as well as differences in agave cultivation, terroir, and distillation techniques. ArteNOM Blanco Histórico 1123 is produced by Master Distiller Salvador Rosales Torres at the Rosales family's esteemed Destilería Cascahuín in El Arenal, Jalisco. This aged blanco is made from lower-brix valley agave, a distinguishing feature of the Lowland style of tequila, and one that results in a peppery, herbaceous, earthy tequila. The agave is steam roasted and the juice is extracted via roller-mill before a double distillation takes place in pot stills. Once distilled, the tequila is barrel-conditioned for 28 days in used Oaxacan mezcal barrels. This method of aging has been used since the early 1900s to produce high quality Valley tequila, and this expression is designated as a “Blanco Histórico”. Pale straw in color, this unveils layers of smoked pepper, baking spice, and roasted pineapple, alongside vegetal notes on the nose. The palate is spicy and earthy, with roasted sweet potato, hot cinnamon, black pepper, and a whiff of hardwood smoke.
