Cantera Negra is made in small-batch quantities from hand-selected blue agaves. Their blue agaves are grown to maturity in the valley regions of Jalisco, Mexico and are selected only from fields that meet Mr. Becherano’s precise and proprietary requirements for black volcanic rock soil. The name, Cantera Negra, means black quarry rock in Spanish.
"Cantera Negra was founded more than 40 years ago, after Don Alberto Becherano spent more than a decade perfecting his proprietary method of making what we believe to be the best tequila in the world.
Today, the family-owned and operated Cavas de Don Max handcrafts each batch of our award winning Tequila to exact standards for taste and smoothness. The taste of Cantera Negra sets it apart and comes from very specific practices established over the past decades.
The notable smoothness and richness that defines our taste starts in the hillsides of Jalisco, Mexico, were we grow our 100% blue agave plants in soils rich in volcanic rock. We know patience pays off, and we allow our blue agaves to fully mature, growing them on average 8 to 10 years before hand harvesting them. Then, we handcraft each batch of our Tequila, distilling it twice for extra smoothness. For all our Tequilas that are aged, our in-house coopers hand-craft oak barrels that provide the rich, round flavors for which we are known. Our aging process goes well beyond industry standards – up to five times longer – to create a smoothness found nowhere else. Only after all of this can our Tequila go before the Becherano family tasting panel, who personally ensure the remarkable taste of Cantera Negra.

Our tequilas are never mixed with any other product, whether natural or man-made, and absolutely nothing is ever added to alter color or flavor. Because of our careful and personal approach to growing, distilling, blending and aging, our 100% blue agave tequilas are especially smooth and rich, offering unrivaled taste." Cantera
