ABOUT BLUE AGAVE
Our valuable raw material “agave azul” has its origins in the fields of some areas of Mexico, with certain qualities and specific conditions, that describe it as an authentic plant with indescribable value.
For ideal growth, our agave requires a semi-dry weather, with an approximate temperature of 23C with an altitude between the 1,500 and 2,000 meters above sea level. The soil has to be strong in iron, loamy, permeable and abundant in basalt derivates. Sun exposure is also very important for its prime development.
The ideal maturation time of our blue agave is from 6 to 7 years, after this time it can be harvested “jimado” and ripped . The high fructose is extracted from the heart of the plant and is later used to elaborate our premium products: agave syrup, agave powder sweetener , inulin and tequila
The uses of the agave plant date back to the prehispanic cultures in Mexico. The Aztecs impute its origin to the goddess Mayahuel. Legend says that a lightning bolt from the gods destroyed the agave plant, leaving only its heart, from which poured a sweet nectar that was later turned into a ritual beverage made as an offering to the gods.
In 1996, in the heart of the agave region, and drawn by this millenary plant, The Iidea Company is born, proud pioneer in the making and commercialization of premium agave products.
