La Tierra

Welcome to La Tierra!
A small batch, craft Agave spirit made from 100% Karoo Agave

La Tierra, meaning “the land,” highlights the vast and breathtaking region of the Karoo desert in South Africa. Known by the Khoisan as “the land of thirst,” this stunning region is home to a magical succulent plant known as Agave. Inspired by the traditional tequila production process of Mexico, La Tierra proudly joins the Agave Revolution happening around the world.

At La Tierra, we are passionate about building a vibrant industry and culture around Agave Spirits that uplifts and empowers everyone involved. We honor the natural beauty of the Karoo by harnessing its earthy flavors to create exceptional Agave spirits.  We are dedicated to crafting authentic South African spirits, and take pride in showcasing the unique qualities of this remarkable succulent.

The Karoo Desert boasts a rich history of traditions passed down through generations. Our uniquely South African Tequila is a testament to the exceptional quality of the Agave Americana thriving in this harsh yet beautiful landscape. With deep roots in local traditions and a commitment to quality, we craft authentic Agave spirits that reflect the resilience and beauty of our nation.

Join us on a journey of discovery and celebrate the Karoo Desert and its extraordinary Agave plant.
