Review: Olmeca Gold Tequila

Posted by Arctic Wolf on May 21, 2018

Olmeca is a Tequila brand owned by Pernod Ricard, distributed by Corby Brands here in Canada. The line-up features three sub brands, Olmeca (which is a Mixto), Olmeca Altos (which is a 100 % Blue Weber Agave tequila) , and Olmeca Tezón (which is 100% Blue Weber Agave and which is produced from 100 % Tahona crushed agave). All of these sub brands are double distilled from Mexican Blue Agave in Copper Pot Stills. As well each of the brands will contain some distillate from the juice of agave which has been crushed in the traditional method with a two ton Tahona millstone.


According to the NOM identifier on the bottle’s back label (NOM 1111 CRT), Pernod Ricard produces the spirit at the Pernod Ricard Mexico Distillery in Arandas, Jalisco which would suggest that Olmeca is a highland Tequila. However, because Olmeca Blanco Clasico is a mixto rather than a 100 % Agave tequila, we cannot be sure that all of the agave within the spirit comes from the same growing region. As well mixto Tequila may also contain up to 49 % by volume of spirit distilled from other sugars.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Olmeca Gold Tequila

“… herbaceaous with an assertive agave presence. The fruity agave aroma caries smells of mushy banana and baked squash as well as a peppery spice in the form of white pepper and lime zest. This initial punch of earthy agave dissipates quickly, and is replaced by a light cane sweetness and indications of fine citrus zest …”

Please enjoy my review as well as my newest cocktail recommendation, the Capeador.
