We are proud to be honoring the only woman owned and operated tequila family this month, Casa San Matias! Learn a little about their history below courtesy of http://www.sanmatias.com/ Photos by Molly DeCoudreaux Photography
At Casa San Matías we are one big family. Everyone involved in the process of tequila crafting is more than just a tequila maker; every person is a unique individual with years of accumulated experiences and backgrounds. So when you sit down to taste one of our products, you don’t taste factory-made but rather a family-made tequila with an extraordinary experience.
While successfully overcoming many challenges along the way, we have maintained a leading position in the tequila industry for almost 130 years. Just like the world around us, we continue to evolve while preserving the authenticity of the original tequila that has been present in our home since 1886.
120 years of history culminating in perfection.
Tequila Orgullo Pueblo Viejo was released to commemorate our 120 years of history and evolution.
During the year the 1st International Space Station was sent into orbit, we introduced tequila Rey Sol. May this year be remembered for men taking a step closer to the sun.
As the world evolved from the traditional to the digital era, at Casa San Matías we progressed as well by developing the first extra-aged tequila in the Mexican market: San Matías Gran Reserva.
History is established.
It’s not easy to add new chapters to an already busy history book, yet that’s exactly what we did. In a decade of progress and historical events, our company didn’t want to stay behind; we introduced Pueblo Viejo, marking a new age in our tequila crafting.
In an era when commercial jet airplanes began to allow for travel, we decided to do a little traveling of our own; relocating our distillery to Ojo de Agua in Los Altos de Jalisco.
During a revolutionary era in Mexico many great social and technological advancements were taking place, and Don Delfino Gonzalez saw this as the perfect opportunity to develop his passion of making tequila. Because of this, Don Delfino brought great progress to the tequila industry without losing the authenticity and value of the real tequila.
