Las Presas, “The Dams”, is a ranch located in Jesus Maria that belonged to Carlos Camarena’s great-grandfather. The field sits at 2,170 meters altitude, is slightly inclined east-west, therefore the agave rows are oriented north-south to receive most of the sunlight without shadowing each other.
The agaves harvested were 6.5 years old with an average weight of 26 kgs and a sugar content of 28.6%.
