COMPANY OVERVIEW

Volans Tequila is born in the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, at El Pandillo Distillery – NOM 1579. Our Master Distiller, Felipe Camarena is a legend in the tequila business; his family has been growing agave since the 1880’s & distilling for four generations.

El Pandillo not only makes the best tequila in the world but is one of the most sustainable distilleries. Innovations include mosto warming tanks, eco-farming practices, rooftop rain collection, vinaza treatment, solid agave waste recycling, and not a drop of water is wasted at the distillery.

Volans operations are based in Idaho, making it the only Idaho based tequila company. Volans Tequila is made with pride using historical and traditional tequila-making methods, while also embracing sustainability and innovation.

TEQUILA WE MAKE

EXTRA AÑEJO

An Extra Añejo tequila is one that is aged for a minimum of three years.

This is what gives the tequila such a complex and sophisticated flavor. The agave is cooked in a steam-powered traditional stone oven, with a blend of natural spring, deep-well and rainwater.

Our Extra Añejo is aged for three and a half years in used American white oak bourbon casks, which gives it a soft and light oakiness. Made with rain, spring and deep well water, it has just the right balance of minerality.

REPOSADO

The newest member of the Volans Family is our Reposado Tequila. It is ‘rested’ in used American white oak bourbon barrels for under one year. This imparts complexity, aromas, & flavors.

AROMAS: Fruity & earthy aromas along with oak, vanilla, cinnamon, clove, & minerals.

FLAVORS: A rich and buttery mouthfeel with flavors of agave, minerals, subtle oak, caramel, and a sweet & peppered finish.

BLANCO

The blanco version of tequila is the product that is obtained after distillation. It contains 40% alcohol content and is unaged.

Our Blanco is a classic. It’s an easy-to-drink agave-forward spirit with light hints of vanilla and citrus. Our blanco tequila has also been oxygenated, which helps remove some unwanted chemicals and compounds, accentuating the sweetness of the natural agave. Made with rain, spring and deep well water, it has just the right balance of minerality. Plus, there’s a bit of a black pepper finish for an added kick.
