Buen Vato values taste and sustainability with the same reverence, and the 4,5 stars over 5 that Difford´s Guide gave to this Tequila Blanco is proof of this.
This global authority on drinking culture highlighted the raw material and process of Buen Vato, as a tequila made of agave harvested in the Valley of Tequila, cultivated without herbicides and pesticides by a 5th generation tequila maker family, cooked in an autoclave (pressure cooker), slowly fermented without any accelerator and distilled in stainless steel pot stills.
Difford´s guide also described the reason because Tequila Buen Vato is not 100% agave, mainly that to minimize the environmental impact, Buen Vato is bulk shipped in tanks at 55% alc./ vol. and it is bottled in Europe using paperboard bottles.
“Although this tequila cannot claim to be “100% agave” it still stands up well when compared to many tequilas that are. And with its sustainable credentials, Buen Vato is an attractive well preposition for bars”, Difford´s guide.
