Calle 23 is the brainchild of Sophie Decobecq, a French born biochemist and engineer. Sophie has been living in Mexico for the past 15 years and her love for agave and Tequila never stops growing. It all began in 1999 when Sophie moved to Mexico, where step by step she started to enter the world of Tequila.
Calle 23 tequila is produced in Zapotlanejo from agaves from the Highland region of Jalisco (fields between Arandas and Tepatitlan). The Highlands region grows plants that produce the perfect tequila tasting profile that Calle 23 wanted to achieve.
Criollo are a type of blue agave, but one that remains at a smaller size even when fully mature. Calle 23 tequila slowly cooks it’s agaves in stainless steel autoclaves for 7 hours. They then let the temperature drop down for 3 more hours, thereby cooking the heart of the agave and ensuring the outside of the plant is not overcooked or burnt.
Calle 23 Blanco ‘Criollo’ is a limited edition, innovative, exceptional tequila. In addition to its unique & distinctive profile it also represents a double announcement for the producer: the nectar was dreamt up and created to celebrate the arrival of her first child.
The bottle’s label tells the story visually of the creation and the Mexican world which inspired it.
What was originally intended to be shared with friends and family developed into a passion distributed the world over. The latest addition to the family, Calle 23 Criollo, is a tequila for connoisseurs which will surprise, delight and enchant.
