Teremana Tequila is made at Destileria Teremana De Agave, NOM 1613 in Jesus Maria, Jalisco. Which is the southern Los Altos region. The distillery is open for tours by appointment only and is currently rated #94 out of #114 tequila distilleries in Mexico according to Tequila Matchmaker (TMM).

Teremana Tequila has three expressions:

  1. Teremana Blanco Tequila
  2. Teremana Reposado Tequila

Teremana Blanco Tequila claims to be a small batch made from 100% agave 

On TMM, Teremana Blanco Tequila has a panel rating of 73/100 and a community rating of 74/100.

The Teremana blanco tequila is made with brick ovens, a roller mill, deep well water, open-air fermentation (without fibers), and it is twice distilled in copper pots that are 3,800 liters each.

Teremana Reposado Tequila

Recent Criticism With Teremana Tequila And Celebrity Brands

Celebrity tequila brands came in vogue after the success of George Clooney’s Casamigos Tequila brand.

With businesses that can have large impacts in Mexico, it is important that environmental, social-economical, and other factors are taken into consideration. Aside from recycling their leftover agave fiber, there is not much else to be said about Teremana’s effort to give back to the small community of Jesus Maria, Jalisco from which their tequila is made. However, that does not mean there aren't other positive things going on behind scenes; we would just like to hear more about them!

We believe that there's a place for celebrity brands like these, but we also believe more give-back efforts ought to be taken into consideration.
