More Information about our Supply Partners at IMAG Organics:
Our story begins in Capilla de Guadalupe, heart of the Altos de Jalisco. A cooperative of farmers, with more than 50 years of experience in the cultivation and industrialization of Agave Azul Tequilana Weber, decided to join forces and founded IMAG in 2005.
Since then, we have developed the most sophisticated supply chain to bring from our fields, natural sweeteners and functional fibers with the highest safety standards.
We are the only vertically integrated company since we control our processes from the cultivation of agave, in our more than 5 thousand hectares until the final product.
What defines us?
Nourishment - IMAG nurtures the well-being of its employees, customer and other partners through sustainable practices
Excellence - We aim for the highest quality in our products, people and processes.
Committment - We have a close relationship with our partners by listening and fulfilling their demands
Our Organic Blue Agave Syrup is an all-purpose sweetener with a neutral mild flavor and low glycemic index. It adds sweetness without changing flavors and its perfect either for beverages or foods.
From planting the agave until we put it on your table, we pay close attention to every detail; from the growth of the agave plant on the fields to our finished products. And as a company that produces organic products, we take great care of the enviroment by cultivating our agaves for 7 years free from pesticides and toxic fertilizers that may be harmful to the environment.
No Artificial Flavours

Tips and Advice for Fermentation of Agave Syrup for Agave Spirit Production:
Recommended Dilution Ratio:
We would say 1:4 (1 part agave syrup to 4 parts water) to get a SG of about 1065 – 1070
Yeast Addition Rates:
Addition rates g/L?DistilaMax® TQorDistilaMax LSyeastat 70-50g/HL +DistilaVite GN70-50g/HL A lot depends on the strength he is targeting but typically this syrup has very low nutrients and low buffers so watch pH. If he is only doing about a 5% alcohol target he can probably reduce the yeast and nutrient a bit.
Agitation is required during ferment. Paying attention to the pH. Slowly adding the diluted syrup to the yeast is also best.
Use Lallemand DistilaMax® TQ or DistilaMax LS yeast and start with 1.0 gr/liter and increase to 2.5 gr/liter if necessary looking for to have 12% ABV at the end of fermentation process
Before to add yeast, have special attention in dilute first the Agave Syrup to 15 °Bx with water to avoid high osmotic stress on the yeast (dilutie 1 part of Agave syrup per 4 parts of water; 200 ml of yeast Agave Syrup with 800 ml of water)
Hydrate the yeast in treated water in a ratio of 10 liters of water per 1 Kg of yeast for 30 minutes.
Add Yeast hydrated in the fermentation tank and receive musts
In the fermentation process need to control the Temperature from 27 to 30C, pH from 3.5 to 6 and add 1 gr/liter (per final volume) of diammonium phosphate (DAP)
In the first distillation process with alambiques the goal is to reach 23% abv
In the second distillation in alambiques the goal is to reach 55% abv
The Brix used to produce an alcoholic fermentation must be low, so if it will be necessary to dilute the agave syrup between 10 and 20 ° Brix (or the ° Brix necessary to reach the desired volume of alcohol), the amount of alcohol that will be produced will depend on this.
- It begins with an agave syrup with a sugar content of 120g / L. (For reference, our agave syrup contains around 760 g of sugars per liter).
- Fermentation temperature = 35 ° C.
- Aeration = 1.0 VVM.
- Aeration time = 1.2 hours.
- Yeast concentration = 5x10 ^ 6 cells / mL (mixture of Kluyveromyces marxianus, Clavispora lusitaniae, and Kluyveromyces marxianus var. Drosophilarum).
-% Alcohol V / V = 4.22%
- Process time = 72 hours
These conditions will change depending on your process and desired % alcohol. The ° Brix of the syrup is adjusted according to the expected volume of alcohol.
