Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday with roots in Mayan and Aztec culture. Instead of mourning and sadness, it celebrates the lives of the departed, seeing death as a natural part of life. KAH Tequila honors Mexico and its people, channeling the spirit of this joyful holiday and its famous imagery. The unique packaging is inspired by calaveras ― traditional colorfully-decorated sugar skulls that symbolize death and rebirth.
Produced at the modern distillery Fabrica de Tequilas Finos, which was established in 2000 in the town of Tequila, Jalisco, it's a proper traditional tequila that comes in the standard 3 formats: Blanco, Reposado, and Añejo. Made with 100% blue agaves from the highlands and lowlands of Jalisco, the agaves are picked at optimal ripeness, having matured for 6 to 7 years. They are then cooked for 9.5 hours, milled, and filtered. After the juice has fermented for 42 hours, it is double-distilled and brought to proof with reverse-osmosis and charcoal-filtered water from a nearby volcano spring.
KAH Tequila Blanco is the unaged expression in their lineup that puts the agave into the spotlight. Bottled at 80 proof, the sweet and peppery Mexican spirit has earned several awards. The bottle takes its inspiration from the Bolivian traditions of the Day of the Dead, where loved ones' actual skulls are kept and brought to the cemetery each year, where they are given tequila and cigarettes. The spirits of the departed are believed to keep the living safe from evil.
