NODO Tequilana coffee
This is a traditional-style Tequila in every aspect, reminiscent of the Tequila of the past, prior to the shift to industrialized farming and production shortcuts in the modern industry. It's crafted just 5 minutes away from the outskirts of Tequila, where the denomination of origin doesn't apply. Instead, the focus is on the family history, people behind the label, and the production process, exemplified by the Bañuelos family, who have been producing Tequilana since the 1970s, predating the Denomination of Origin regulations for Tequila.
