100% Agave tequila means tequila that has been produced from only the fermented and distilled juices of the "Blue" Agave. Naturally, 100% Agave tequila is costlier to produce than those made with 49 percent added sugars. Distilleries producing 100% Agave tequila must adhere to set standards established by the Mexican government. These tequilas must be bottled in Mexico in the same region from which they are produced.


Sauza tequila was first made by Don Ceonobia Sauza over one hundred years ago and remains one of the most popular tequilas today, with a wide range of styles. The house style of Sauza is bold and assertive, piquant and robust, a marriage of Spanish and Mexican tradition.

Mezcal is derived from one of several species of agave, primarily Agave angustifolia, which is grown in the warmer and lower semiarid regions of Mexico than those in which the pulque- producing agaves flourish. Mezcal has a characteristic smoky flavor and is commonly sweetened and flavored with fruits, herbs, and nuts to make it more palatable.

Mezcal de Oaxaxa is uniquely and deliciously different than tequila. It is never mass produced, but handmade by mezcaleros in the small villages of Oaxaxa. Its complex aromas and bold, earthy flavors earn Encantado a place among the super-premium mezcals referred to in their homeland as "the Cognacs of Mexico".
