About this destilado de agave
Caballito Cerrero Chato is made with maguey Chato, which in this case is referring to an agave Angustifolia, which is either related-to or synonymous with maguey Espadin. The agave are cooked in a brick steam oven, milled in a double pass mill, fermented in open stainless steel tanks with both wild and proprietary yeast, and distilled in stainless steel and copper.
Caballito Cerrero is a Tequila company founded in 1968 by Don Alfonso Jimenez Rosales. It is considered one of the top Tequila distilleries in the world. They're committed to producing Tequila the traditional way and that sometimes means they butt heads with the Consejo Regulador del Tequila (CRT). For this reason, some of their traditionally produced Tequilas do not fit within the guidelines of what can legally be called Tequila, so they label them Destilado de Agave.
