To ensure exceptional field-to-bottle control over its Tequila production, global spirits company Amber Beverage Group (ABG) is acquiring agave fields in the Los Altos de Jalisco region in Mexico. The 220-hectare fields are filled with 1 to 3-year-old agave plants that will be used to support the operations of highly awarded tequila producer, Fabrica de Tequilas Finos.
“Having our own agave fields demonstrates our commitment to expanding our presence in Mexico and to growing our share of the global Tequila market overall. In five years, we will be able to supply our own brands with enough blue agave raw material to ensure the production of our tequilas and even broaden our services for private label projects such as American singer and songwriter Nick Jonas’ Villa One Tequila which is only just starting to show its full potential,” said CEO of Amber Beverage Group, Seymour Ferreira.
“To meet the growing demand for our high-quality tequilas, we need to make sure we are well equipped – with hardworking jimadors, up-to-date technologies, experienced master blenders and distillers, and most importantly, the highest quality blue agave. Having all these key ingredients will help us to produce the finest tequilas there are,” said Olegs Alainis, CEO of Fabrica de Tequilas Finos.
Fabrica de Tequilas Finos (FTF) is known for the high-quality products it manufactures, confirmed by its numerous awards from international competitions. It is the home for such brands as KAH® Tequila, Rooster Rojo® tequila, Cenote®, Don Camilo®, Zapopan, AC/DC Thunderstruck® and Villa One tequila. Located at the foot of Tequila Hill, in the legendary town of Tequila, Mexico, it is modern, yet still preserves the best tequila production traditions. This is achieved with the help of dedicated people who work for the company, and who know the craft of making tequila. Most of them have worked in the Fabrica de Tequilas Finos since the beginning of its operations. FTF was founded in 2000 and acquired by Amber Beverage Group in 2016. All tequilas crafted at Fabrica de Tequilas Finos are only 100% Agave products.
