The Solento Story
Made for those who appreciate the ritual of slowing
down and being present, Solento is an award-winning,
USDA certified organic tequila range made in small
batches from a single estate.
We appreciate that good things take time,
and we know that good tequila is in no
rush at all. The name Solento is based on
the Spanish translation of the words “slow sun”.
We celebrate slow.
Take it slow
Have you noticed everything is moving very fast?
We’re in a highly productive society, fueled by efficiency,
and a creeping mindset that tries to convince us that
maybe it’s a good idea to stretch time to the limit.
We are craving to slow down, recalibrate, to pay attention,
and to appreciate the things around us.
Solento is more of a mindset than a drink. It’s about
carving out time to appreciate the real experiences
that are already here.
After growing slowly under the Mexican sun for
seven years, the certified organic agave is harvested
in small batches from a single estate in Amatitán, Jalisco.
The agave hearts will cook for two days in stone ovens
before being pressed to release their precious juices.
Fermented and distilled naturally, the tequila comes
out pure in flavor, and—in its aged versions—gains
complexity from American oak barrels.
A note from the founder
For me, Solento is more of a mindset than a drink.
It’s about carving out time to appreciate the real
experiences that we have every day.
I want to create a life well-lived and have more time
with those who matter to me. It’s about connecting
to others, and especially myself.
