Cierto Tequila Story

Master Distillers

Our Master Distillers, Enrique Fonseca and Sergio Mendoza, are fourth and fifth generation agaveros. Their families have grown agave since the 1800s and they have become one of the largest agave growers in the world. They bring generations of knowledge and expertise to every bottle of Cierto.

The 5 Elements

Enrique and Sergio hand select only the finest mature agave for Cierto. They then handcraft Cierto in the legendary La Tequileña distillery, located in the heart of the town of Tequila.

Enrique and Sergio combine five key elements when making Cierto:

Earth

After patiently tending to their estate grown highland agaves in the rich soils of Atotonilco, Enrique and Sergio select only the very best agaves for Cierto.  Each agave grows for seven to ten years before being harvested, allowing for full maturation.

Fire

Harvested at the peak of their sweetness, the hand selected agaves are cooked slowly and carefully to allow the piñas (the heart of the agaves) to yield the sweet juice that forms the base of Cierto.

Water

The agave juice is combined with our proprietary yeast and fresh, natural spring water which has been filtered through volcanic rock over hundreds of years. There’s nothing artificial added to Cierto, we only use 100% pure and natural ingredients.

Air

Before bottling Cierto, every batch is filtered and oxygenated twice to ensure a smooth finish every time you taste one of our incredible tequilas.

Time

It takes time to perfect a great tequila. Enrique and Sergio diligently handcraft each batch of Cierto with patience and tender care. They are true artisans deeply committed to delivering excellence in every bottle.

We hope that Cierto elevates your spirits and that you are graced with love, honor, truth, and beauty in your life. Salud!
