The story of Mt. Defiance “Wild” Agave Spirit begins in Mexico. Wild agaves grow in desert flatlands, arid hillsides, lush valleys and at extreme elevations. The agave hearts are harvested by hand and processed to extract the nectar that is delivered to our distillery in Middleburg, Virginia. The varied growing environments of the wild agaves create unique flavor profiles that are brought out by fermenting the 100% agave nectar in small batches, followed by double distillation in our copper pot still. Perfect for connoisseurs as well as those looking to branch out in the world of agave spirits.
