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. Today his grandson, Carlos Camarena, oversees production. Just like his grandfather, he is passionate about agave and fiercely protective of his traditional methods. Every decision, every part of the painstaking process, is done in celebration of this unique treasure. Shunning efficiency in favor of a commitment to meticulous care and attention to detail - El Tesoro is a precious tequila, waiting to be discovered.
