Chicago, IL (April 24, 2018) – El Tesoro de Don Felipe® Tequila is proud to introduce an exquisite new bottle and label for its core expressions, including El Tesoro™ Blanco, Reposado and Añejo tequilas, that celebrate the brand’s heritage and capture founder Don Felipe Camarena’s time-honored production methods and commitment to the traditional art of tequila making. The new packaging is expected on shelves this May.
Don Felipe established La Alteña Distillery in 1937 in Mexico where the award-winning El Tesoro Tequila is made. El Tesoro has always been “the treasure” of Jalisco, created in celebration of Don Felipe’s most precious asset: his 100% estate-grown agaves, which grow in the rich, red soil of the highlands that create El Tesoro’s distinct agave-forward taste.
“I am proud to make tequila here at La Alteña the same way my grandfather, Don Felipe, made tequila more than 80 years ago,” says Carlos Camarena, El Tesoro Master Distiller. “We believe our practice of making tequila ‘the old-fashioned way’ allows us to craft the tequila we’re proud of – the tequila that allows the full flavor of our estate-grown agave to shine through. My father’s signature is on each label, in honor of my grandfather and the tequila my family has created for generations.”
El Tesoro is a truly authentic tequila made with the knowledge and passion passed down through five generations. Each step of the process requires mastery of a skill and a commitment to quality. It takes true dedication, but the resulting flavor captures the essence of the spirit at La Alteña. These traditional methods include using 100% estate grown agave, allowing the agave to grow longer than most to peak maturity, crushing 100% of the agave with a volcanic tahona wheel to extract and intensify agave flavor and double distilling to proof without ever adding water after the final distillation.
Within this packaging refresh, the exceptional liquid of El Tesoro Tequila remains the same, while the new, artisanal bottle and label more visually communicate the time-honored process and attention to detail that has made El Tesoro a tequila unlike any other. Notable packaging features include the following:
