There are many species of agave which can be found in Mexico, however only the Weber Blue can be used to make Tequila.

Tierra Noble is made at La Estacada in Jalisco. La Estacada is the highest modern distillery on the planet at 7,200 feet of elevation. At this altitude, the low temperatures cause the cooked agave mash to ferment slowly with exclusively Montpelier wine yeast while preserving the aromatic richness of the agave. Completely unique in the tequila industry, Tierra Noble achieves a secondary malolactic fermentation – more common in chardonnay production than in spirits – after the initial alcoholic fermentation.
This tequila is aged in French and American White Oak barrels for 24-30 months.

Dark chocolate and tequila make a great match. The warming, complex nature of most tequila complements the luxurious, creamy texture of good chocolate.
The underlying sweetness and alcohol bite to tequila is offset extremely well by the more bitter and lingering flavor of dark chocolate.
Our organic Dark 70% chocolate from GREEN & BLACK’s is made from fine Trinitario cacao beans, providing complex fruit notes and intense bittersweet chocolate aromas.
GREEN & BLACK’S is a chocolate brand founded on sustainable and ethical cocoa sourcing principles.
