El Tesoro de Don Felipe tequila honors Don Felipe Camarena, the man who established La Alteña Distillery in 1937, where El Tesoro continues to be distilled today. El Tesoro tequila is “the treasure” of Jalisco, created in celebration of Don Felipe’s most precious asset: his agaves. Today El Tesoro is still made honoring the same traditional methods that have been passed down through generations. El Tesoro Añejo is aged in American oak ex-bourbon barrels for two to three years. This process allows the spirit to maintain the complexion of agave, yet take on a hint of sweetness with notes of vanilla, caramel and oak.
