Truly unique, and steeped in history, El Tesoro® is one of the last known tequilas to fully embrace the traditional tequila-making process. A tequila crafted with knowledge passed down through centuries and infused with the passion of its makers, El Tesoro® honors Don Felipe Camarena, the man who established La Alteña Distillery in 1937.
Named for Don Felipe Camarena, the man who established La Alteña Distillery in 1937 and where El Tesoro is distilled today. The agaves used in its production are 100% estate-grown agaves from Los Altos (aka Highlands) of Jalisco. After the agaves cook for three days in a horno (oven), they are then crushed by a two-ton tahona stone. Fermentation and distillation include not only the aguamiel (cooked agave juice), but the fibers and pulp. It is distilled to proof meaning no water is added.
