From the Casa San Matias website:
San Matias Tahona is the result of 130 years of experience and time-honored methods reflecting Casa San Matias passion for producing exquisite tequila. This 100% artisanal, small-batch tequila blanco is made according to tradition. To achieve the fullest flavor, the agave is steamed in stone ovens, crushed with our original tahona stone from 1886, fermented in wooden vats and distilled in copper pot stills – just as it was done centuries ago. From all of us at Casa San Matias, we invite you to try this pure expression of blue agave.
