SCIENTISTS DISCOVER DIAMOND CREATION POTENTIAL IN TEQUILA
by Brady Bunte
Mexico City, Mexico, December 10,2014 - Scientists from the National Autonomous University of Mexico and Nuevo León´s Autonomous University have recently released findings that indicate the capacity to create thin and uniform diamond films using tequila. According to lead researchers Javier Morales, Luis Miguel Apatiga and Victor Manuel Castano, these findings are expected to result in big benefits for industries seeking an inexpensive source of diamond films for commercial applications.
“To dissipate any doubts, one morning on the way to the lab I bought a pocket-size bottle of cheap white tequila and we did some tests… There is no doubt; tequila has the exact proportion of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen atoms necessary to form diamonds,” said researcher Apatiga.
Using a technique called ‘The Pulsed Liquid Injection Chemical Vapor Deposition (PLICVD)’, the scientists were able to prove that tequila lies within the Diamond Growth Region, and can be used to grow thin diamond films at low cost for commercial purposes.
Diamonds are a highly expensive commodity for manufacturing industries. They are very costly to buy from mining companies and sometimes carry the risk of contributing to the blood diamond problem. Artificially produced diamonds are therefore considered the best option by manufacturers in need of a material with diamonds’ unique properties. It is hoped that this discovery will lead to an inexpensive route to utilizing it in commercial production of such items as high power semiconductors, optical electronic devices and abrasives.
More research is still being carried out to discover the full extent to which tequila can be used to produce diamonds, including how the addition of certain impurities to the process can vary the type of diamonds being created.
Brady Bunte, the CEO of premium Tequila brand, Tres Sietes, is expecting that within the next few years, more companies may manufacture diamonds using this process.
Tequila is an alcoholic beverage exclusively produced in limited regions within Mexico. This primary raw material in its production is the agave plant that can take up to 8-10 years to mature. There are two main varieties of tequila in the market, the 100% agave tequila and mixtos. Mixtos contain 51% agave and additional sugars and flavoring. 100% agave tequila is further classified according to how long it has been aged and the addition of flavors.
About Tres Sietes Company
Founded in 2006 by Brady Bunte, Tres Sietes Tequila is made in their own facility where they make their tequila "from field to glass." The company combines distillation techniques from Spain with Mexican tradition. It is produced at Fabrica Tres Sietes and "Tequila Guru" Francisco Gonzalez, who oversees the state-of-the-art technology that steams the agave through a diffuser rather than bake it in the oven.
The name purportedly represents celestial perfection on three levels of manifestation: matter, astral, and spirit. According to mass amounts of literature, the number seven has deep spiritual significance. This significance is applied to the cultivation and distillation process of Tres Sietes Tequila.
The “matter” is the soil and cultivation traditions, the “astral” is the conditions of weather and the alchemy that create the purity that rest within the “spirit”, which is the final result of Tres Sietes Tequila.
