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.
Our Extra Añejo honors Carlos Camarena’s father Felipe J. and their shared passion for aging tequila. This special tequila blend is slowly aged in American oak ex-bourbon barrels for four to five years, which add rich flavors of chocolate and coffee.
