OUR TEQUILA PRODUCTION

Making Tequila is equivalent to cooking a fine dish, we require the best ingredients, seasoning and just the right timing. The experience of one hundred and twenty years manufacturing Tequila has taught us to select the agaves that reached their optimal maturity. Expert jimadores cut the leaves of the agave with a coa (a kind of round hoe with an edge around its perimeter), until leaving only the heart of the plant, which we give the name of piña. Piña literally means “pineapple” in Spanish but in Mexico it is also used to describe the heart of the agave because it so closely resembles a pineapple. The piña has become one of the main motifs in the agave world and suffuses Tequila culture.

The piña, cut into halves or quarters depending on their size, are placed in such a way, in adequate size brick ovens, so that they receive the heat of the steam uniformly during the most favorable timing and obtain the ideal cooking, so that the processed starches, stored by the agaves during the growing years, are transformed into sugars. The cut pieces of the cooked piñas are processed in mills that crush them and wash with water to separate the sugars from the wood fibers and obtain the honeys.

These honeys are poured into stainless steel tubs, water is added at the ideal temperature so that the yeast (microscopic organisms) multiply by millions and in a natural process transforms honey into alcohol. We call the result of this fermentation must. (mosto) The must, which contains thirty-two different alcohols, is refined in stills that separate the alcohols whose taste and odor is not pleasant based on evaporation, and thus, we obtain the Tequila that has given the Aha Family prestige in the world.

THE AGING OF TEQUILA

Refined Tequila when leaving the stills is crystalline like rain water, it can be commercialized and it is called Tequila Blanco. According to pure Tequila lovers, this is the true flavor of Tequila.  As it ages in wooden barrels, although it is a natural process in which the wood infuses flavors and aromas that enrich it, pure Tequila drinkers assure: «Tequila itself has such a wealth of essences that it does not need other tastes.» (In the range of alcoholic beverages, Tequila, in nuances and combinations is the most complete and abundant of all).

Refined Tequila, if it is aged in white oak barrels over a period of two months minimum to eleven months and days, is called Tequila Reposado. At that time, the solvent properties of tequila bleed the aromas and flavors from the wood, infiltrates the Tequila and makes it softer and sweeter to the palate.

When aging exceeds twelve months, it is called Tequila Añejo, which presents the palate with outstanding sensations of subtlety and sweetness.  If Tequila is aged for more than three years, we call it Tequila Extra Añejo, obtaining extraordinary flavor characteristics for the most demanding tastes.

THE CONTAINER

For an exceptional Tequila, an exceptional presentation is required. For that reason, the different bottles of our products were created by artists, who found in the wealth of Mexican craftsmanship the materials and processes to achieve exclusive designs. By acquiring a bottle of the Aha Family products, you get a piece of artistic value in addition to the best Tequila. 

The tradition of blown glass in the Guadalajara metropolitan area dates back to the end of the 19th century. Since then to date it has become the capital of blown glass in Mexico and there, we proudly manufacture the bottles of most of our products. 

Mexican ceramics began thousands of years ago.  The different people of Mesoamerica left us a rich tradition in the art of making vessels and from that tradition we present the bottle of our Locuaz Tequila, a proposal that combines ancient technique with contemporary creation.

ARTISINAL TEQUILA PROCESS

AHA YETO knows that the process of our Tequila is very important to offer consumers a high quality product and unsurpassed flavor.

That is why we care for each of the steps to create the flavor that characterizes us.
