Above all else, we focus on the highest quality ingredients paired with a refined distilling process to achieve a tequila with a superior taste. It is this commitment that makes our product different than trendy spirits that come to make a big splash but don’t deliver in the glass.
The formula for Yéyo starts with care for the earth. We harvest only the best mature agave plants from a single estate, using no added pesticides or fertilizer. The magic is made when we slowly roast the agave for 53+ hours + 7 hours of prep and cool down in traditional brick ovens to bring out exceptional flavor and sweetness. After fermenting for 190+ hours with the sweet serenade of Spanish classical music to relax the juice, we double distill in copper pot stills for a cleaner and crisper finish. Also Yéyo is verified additive free by Tequila Matchmaker. Using only 3 ingredients: mature agave, yeast and deep well water.
What has evolved is a tequila made for tequila drinkers. Smooth enough to sip, and a flavor profile strong enough to mix - Yéyo serves as a vivid and distinct base to pair and enjoy.
The Feliciano Vivanco (NOM 1414) began cultivating highland agave during Mexico's tumultuous post-revolutionary period of 1910-1929. In Don Feliciano's hometown of Arandas, Jalisco, the next four generations of the Vivanco family remained devoted to expanding the family's agave plantations and in 1994 the family dream of acquiring their own Arandas distillery was finally realized with the purchase of the "Destilería El Ranchito." With approximately 2,000+ acres of estate-grown agave at their disposal, the Vivanco family has since become renown for producing rich, well-balanced tequilas created by marrying honored distillation traditions with modern innovation.
