Named in honor of the people of Tequila, El Tequileño was founded in 1959 by Don Jorge Salles Cuervo with a vision to create only the finest tequila. Sixty years later, El Tequileño is made in the same place using the same recipe by the grandson of Don Jorge. El Tequileño Blanco, a long standing favorite that has won the hearts and minds of the people in the magical town of Tequila and the surrounding area. It is made from estate-grown agave and crafted at the La Guarrena distillery. They take especial pride in their recycling of agave fibers as compost for their own fields.
