Crafting an organic tequila seltzer begins with organic, 100% blue Weber agave. The process really is just the heart of the agave plant, called the piña, being heated and pressed to create a juice that is distilled into tequila. Sounds simple, right?
It’s actually far from it. Finding a distillery that aligns with Freshie’s need for all-organic ingredients was difficult. To maintain its crisp, refreshing taste, having 100% organic, blue Weber agave was a must.
Freshie’s partner distillery not only distills the premium tequila used to make the superior refreshment, they do so through a process that is 103% solar-powered and zero waste.
The sustainable farming process starts with organic agave plants that have matured for 7 years. After the maturing process is complete, the distillery uses 100% solar-powered technology to turn the juices from the piña into tequila.
You’re probably wondering about that extra 3% solar power energy. That 3% represents the extra energy that the distillery produces and gives back to Mexico.
Now let’s talk about zero waste.
Every ounce of the agave plant’s juices are used, and the rest of the plant is composted.
Prepare to be impressed… Being a zero waste facility doesn’t end with their own produce.
Guadalajara has one of the largest fruit markets in the area. After the market ends, the distillery purchases leftover fruit to bring to the compost site to create an organic fertilizer. Not only does this fertilize the agave plants, but it supports local Mexican farmers.
When you see “Organic” labeled on a Freshie, know that it is 100% real. From the agave plants, to the tequila and even to the fertilizer, Freshie is a sustainably farmed, all-organic way to enjoy tequila.
