Los Altos, Jalisco – In the heart of the Highlands region of Jalisco, where the rugged landscapes echo with Mexico’s timeless spirit, Espolon Tequila was created as a tribute. Distilled at the Casa San Nicholás, this tequila is a labour of love driven by the legacy of Maestro Tequilero Cirilo Oropeza, a visionary who sought to redefine tequila’s identity. 

At the heart of Espolon’s philosophy lies a commitment to crafting tequila that transcends convention. Oropeza envisioned a tequila that pays homage to tradition while boldly forging ahead into the future. This quest for excellence is palpable in every sip, a product of unique fermentation and distillation techniques utilizing hand-harvested 100% Blue Weber Agave from the highlands of Jalisco.

Each bottle of Espolon Tequila tells a story, a narrative of Mexico’s rich culture and history. Inscribed with the iconic Rooster, a symbol synonymous with Mexico’s courageous spirit, Espolon pays tribute to the artists who have vividly portrayed the country’s heritage to the world.
