As a small family brand, you won't find us everywhere.  Mi Casa has always been an joy that is mostly shared through word of mouth.  

We are artisans based in the San Francisco Bay Area. We farm agave on our beautiful ranch in Michoacan Mexico where our founder, Ezequiel Duarte Rodriguez was raised.

We farm agave and make tequila because we can, not because we have to. To love tequila is to love the sun and the earth and dirt and the rain.  Mi Casa encapsulates all that.  In fact, we are the only single estate tequila from Michoacan in the US market.

Our tequilas are and will always be additive free and produced with the attention to detail that respects the agave.  We steam cook our agaves and distill them twice in stainless steel.  After, we let our blanco sit for 6 months before bottling which accounts for it's structure and silky smooth finish.  Our rested expressions are aged in Jack Daniels barrels for 10 (Reposado) and 30 months (Añejo).

Our Story

It began as a love story.

Quetzecoatl was heading towards battle.  He sought to destroy the evil witch who demanded blood for rain and caused pain to an already suffering mankind.  When he arrived at her liar he found her grand daughter whose name is Mayahuel. She was imprisoned by the witch so Quetzecoatl freed her.  Together they fled and fell in love. They sought refuge on earth where they disguised themselves as trees so they could meditate on light touches and soft whispers. 

In this way they lived for an age until their debt was due.  

On a stormy night the evil witch found them and struck Mayahuel with lightning until her earthly manifestation was in tatters.  It was then that Quetzecoatl cried upon the earth and where his tears met her remains, agave grew for the first time.

My father Ezequiel Duarte Rodriguez had the vision of creating a means to bless his family and did it through agriculture.  Together with my mother Carmen, my parents planted our first lot of agave in the highlands of Michocan in the year 2000.  Our intentions have always sharply focused on providing a world for our children that is bright, adventurous and mysterious. 

In many ways Mi Casa Tequila is a generational product.  It is a small batch single estate spirit brought to you by a pair of first generation creative types, working alongside our parents to bring you the award winning spirit of Michoacan.

Welcome to Mi Casa.

Honest Lou says...

Most readers know me as a blanco lover, and trust me when I say that ‘Mi Casa’ is a clean, tasty, delicious blanco, and it’s now one of my very favorites, and this needs to be sampled by blanco purists.
