Sustainablility

La Dama is the biggest sustainable blue agave grower in the world. We present a paradigm shift in the present and future of tequila. Our agricultural and production processes are based on the revolutionary ideas of our Mexican ancestors, their sustainable perception of nature, advanced agricultural methodology and the ritualistic aspects of their production processes.

We prioritize and acknowledge agave as the most important ingredient of tequila making, the only way of creating sustainability for the future is finding balance between the endemic ecosystems we share with Mother Earth to produce our beloved spirit, we believe this should be the norm if we want upcoming generations to have the possibility of also enjoying our ancient spirit:

Our Algave Lands

In Los Altos was once ruled by the Chichimecas, an expert hunting-gathering community with a deep understanding of natural cycles to whom we owe the creation of key cultural developments, including the first Agave spirits. Several thousand years ago, in the Chichimeca land, it was a belief that the female gender was the most important element in their society because it was the only one that could bring life and preserve it.

Their entire social organisation was built on this conception. It’s thanks to this paradigm and their astonishing ability to transform the ingredients provided to them; that the first agave derived products were created. Everything from food, clothes, and even the sacred spirit.

Juan and the Team

One of the objectives of La Dama is to rescue the original sense of community behind agave. In Mexico, we live in a beautiful yet challenging society. Although it’s true that the biggest asset of our country is its people, it’s also true that the social conditions are far from fair to the same people that help us create the Tequila. From bad public policy, environmental toxicity to unfair economical practices in the industry, the last benefited sector is the people. They are the only ones that haven’t improved their economic conditions, while the profits of major tequila companies boomed. Don Juan, our maestro agavero started working in agricultural related labors when he was ten years old, after a life of endurance and love for agave he has taught around 1000 people how to work the agave in a natural way, the way it was done 60 years ago. For us, Don Juan and everyone that works with us is a success story we want to tell. We aim to leave a legacy that said that we pushed an improvement in the socio-economical conditions of the families that work with us, that they can work in agave for love and tradition, not for necessity. We have a phrase that we repeat in our fields “We work together, we dream together, we grow together.”
