After years of searching and testing by the best of agave horticulturalists, we found the source of the purest organic blue agave mother saplings to bring up from Mexico to plant on our South facing hillside behind the hidden ranch gates, along the fertile orchards of Falbrook, and alongside the sparrows of Capistrano canyon. With our growing agave plants we are applying the time aged roasting and distilling formula whispered to us from a 4th generation mater tequila distiller combined with our family's inverse cut technique that defies all traditional distilling rules. These techniques matched with the three unique Califonria terroirs, untainted soils, and fresh Pacific ocean breeze is producing the smoothest blue agave spirits we have ever tasted. We've tasted a lot. This is our Central Coast to deep Mex road trips filled with adventure, danger, bribery, extortion, and kilometers of untouched coastline in a bottle.

This is the roots of our distilling family backgrounds dating back more than a century where my Theo Taki taught me his great grandfather's secret anise seed and our own California floral pedal extract spirit recipe. No spirit compares to absinthes mesmerizing effect like a wave of warm sea water washing over you.
