Since 1967, Olmeca has been made 2,100 metres above sea level at Los Altos in Mexico. This region is renowned for its mineral-rich, red soil and especially pure-tasting tequila. Olmeca is distributed in 80 countries and is among the leaders in several markets such as Russia, where it is the no.1 tequila.

History and know-how

Olmeca’s production process underpins the tequila’s superlative quality, with craftsmanship playing a prominent role. The process makes use of the ‘Tahona’ method dating back some 500 years, which enables the extraction of a liquid (‘Tahona’) from the finest blue agave plants. This liquid is fermented and then distilled in copper stills, lending Olmeca a very smooth taste.
