Don Fulano Blanco is the purest expression of blue agave from the highlands of Jalisco. A delicate tequila, Don Fulano ages its agaves for 10 years, after which they are carefully selected before being harvested. This Blanco showcases the rich red soil that the agaves were planted in and which gives the tequila a unique sense of origin and of terroir. The new spirit is rested for 60 days in stainless steel before being bottled.
Dedicated to agriculture, the Fonseca family were major suppliers of all basic crops, grains, and fruits, but by the 1960’s their main focus had shifted to agave as they began to supply many of the tequila producers throughout the highlands.
The mission at Don Fulano has always been to produce exceptional tequila. They employ a truly unique dual distillation process; an old style double column still and also a traditional copper pot still, using heat to eliminate any unwanted alcohols. The two distillates are then blended. Anywhere between 12-16% of the distillate comes from the column still, this process is used exclusively by Don Fulano and allows them to consistently create tequilas of the highest quality.
