The Process
Requiring a careful combination of patience, care, and love, the process of creating Tears of Llorona starts with 100% pure Weber Agave Azul grown in the volcanic slopes of the Mexican highlands, where agaves grow slowly and naturally to achieve a higher starch content. Germán personally inspects each plant before harvesting and then slow-roasts the piñas the traditional way before fermenting using a proprietary yeast.

The fermented mosto, or must, is then distilled twice in traditional copper pot stills and aged in three distinct types of oak barrels— Scotch, Sherry Oak, and Brandy — for five years, which is two years longer than most traditional extra añejos.

Where the Magic Happens
Master Distiller Germán slow cooks the agaves for over 20 hours to achieve the greatest conversion of sugars possible without losing the flavors of the soil, where the agaves grew for at least 8 years.

Three Barrels
Aged for five years in three types of barrels, including scotch, brandy, and Sherry oak barrels, Tears of Llorona is then masterfully blended by Germán, delivering a layered tasting experience with a complexity of flavors. Germán then bottles at 43% specific gravity to balance the flavors. This slow, hand-crafted process results in a very high rate of osmotic loss, known as the “angels’ tears”; another reason for the name, Tears of Llorona.


Small Batch
While many aged spirits are discerned by the year in which they were released, each small batch, or lote, of Tears adorns a unique icon on the bottle’s neck label—one which often tells a story about the product or the maker.

Tasting Notes

Master Distiller Germán González Gorrochotegui suggests a wide glass that allows Tears to open up. Don’t rush into it. Let it breathe. Swirl it in the glass.

And do choose your glassware carefully because this is an experience for all five senses: the deep amber, the lingering nose, the feel of the legs on the glass, the conversation that ensues, and of course, the unforgettable taste.

AROMA: Caramel custard, dried fruit, and dark chocolate
TASTE: Agave with a heady spiciness and complexity for experienced palates
FINISH: Described best as "a warm scarf on a cold day."


Best Served Neat
Borrowing techniques from the world of fine cognacs and armagnacs, Tears is a complex sipping spirit best enjoyed neat at room temperature. As you sip your way through a snifter, the flavors evolve to give you a layered tasting experience.
Pairing Suggestions
Tears pairs beautifully with food and can hold its own alongside the rich flavors of red meat, bold seafood dishes, chocolate cake, and, of course, cigars.
