Featured Tequila of the Month, Tequila Código 1530

El Tequila Privado

It’s a question often asked in the outside world: What kind of tequila do those who ‘know’ drink in Mexico?

For generations, the answer has only been known to a select group of Mexico’s most respected families and Los Bajos’ finest jimadors – they are the fortunate few who have had the privilege of tasting  El Tequila Privado, a private recipe from a little distillery in Amatitán. With no commercial pressure to ever bring this private tequila to market, a small group of Mexican families have heartily funded it. For several generations, a local Amatitán artisan and distilling family has passionately produced this spirit, never veering from the centuries old  codes and customs – “Los Códigos” – that have made it  the most selective tequila in the world.

For the first time, those who have enjoyed this private, previously nameless tequila will share what is now known as Código 1530 with the world.

Great things always happen at La Fogata, Voted San Antonio's Best Margaritas.

Remember to always drink responsibly and to never drink and drive.
