Del Día Tequila is a brand of tequila that is produced in Amatitán, Jalisco, Mexico. The tequila is made from 100% Blue Agave that is grown in the region’s volcanic soil. The agave is cooked in stone ovens and distilled using traditional methods.
Del Día Tequila is committed to producing high-quality tequila that is made using sustainable practices. The company sources its agave from local farmers and uses water from artesian wells. Del Día Tequila is also committed to supporting the local community by employing women from the community to label and package the tequila.
- FIRST CLASS BLUE AGAVE: The finest +6-year-old blue agave is hand-selected and carefully harvested by experienced ‘jimadores’. The minerals-rich dark soil of the Tequila Volcano provides the unique agave ‘piñas’.
- ELEVEN HOURS COOKING: 6 to 8 kilograms of agave piñas are used to produce 1 liter of Del Dia Tequila. The piñas are naturally steam-cooked in a stainless steel autoclave for 11 hours. Then, they are taken to the roller mill to extract the rich juices.
- DOUBLE DISTILLED: The juices are fermented for up to 48 hours in 10,000 liters stainless-steel tanks, to transform simple sugars into alcohols. When our ‘maestro tequilero’ decides that the fermentation process is done, the alcohols are double distilled in stainless steel stills to become our exquisite tequila.
- AGING: Del Dia Blanco goes straight to the bottle, keeping the herbaceous and fresh notes of the agave. The other profiles go to white oak barrels to be rested from 3 months to 3 years to get a complex balance between agave and wooden notes.
The history of Del Día Tequila dates back to 1993 when Jesús Correa decided to continue the tradition of tequila making that his father had taught him. Correa and his family have been producing Del Día Tequila using traditional methods for over 20 years.
Correa was born and raised in Amatitán, Jalisco, Mexico, which is the heart of tequila country. He learned the art of tequila making from his father, who was a stoker at a local tequila distillery.
In 1993, Correa decided to start his own tequila distillery. He named his tequila Del Día, which means “of the day” in Spanish. Correa wanted to create a tequila that was made using traditional methods and that reflected the unique flavors of the region.
Correa and his family produce Del Día Tequila in small batches. They cook the agave in stone ovens and distill it using traditional copper stills. The tequila is then aged in oak barrels for at least two months.
Del Día Tequila is a popular brand of tequila that is enjoyed by people all over the world. The tequila is known for its smooth taste and its rich agave flavor. Del Día Tequila is available in a variety of expressions, including blanco, reposado, añejo, and extra añejo.
Correa is proud of the tradition of tequila making and he is committed to producing high-quality tequila that is made using sustainable practices. He believes that Del Día Tequila is a reflection of the unique flavors and culture of Mexico.
