Tequila Centinela Blanco is 100% Agave and produced at Tequila Centinela in Arandas, Jalisco. Tequila Centinela was established in 1904 and was the first distillery located in Arandas, Jalisco. Centinela means "the one to watch and keep". The process has not changed. They combine tradition with top technology to ensure the consistency in their products. Their Agaves take approximately 8 years to mature and are hand-picked at their peak from their own Agave fields. They also buy 20% from local producers to help the region's economy. The Jimador's are trained to cut the pencas extremely close to the pina to prevent any bitter flavours during cooking.
