Don Felipe Camarena founded La Alteña distillery over 80 years ago. However, he created more than just a distillery and a tequila, he built a family. Our family puts heart into our work and uses skills that have been passed down through generations. We are proud of the tequila we make, because it is a true reflection of our community.
?El Tesoro is a celebration of our most precious asset: our blue weber agave. The agave we use to make our tequila is grown on the Camarena estate in the highlands of Jalisco, where the mineral-rich red soil plants a more rounded, fruity and floral flavor. We capture this flavor immediately as it comes off the still and bottle it in our Blanco tequila. We carefully age our Reposado and Añejo tequilas in American oak ex-bourbon barrels, which impart rich notes of oak and vanilla, enhancing the agave flavor without masking it.
