SINGLE ESTATE TEQUILA FROM MICHOACAN 

FAMILY OWNED × Crafted with Love

A TALE OF TWO GENERATIONS

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 their parents to bring you the spirit of their land in a time when the world has opened itself up to boutique distillates. 

Mi Casa Tequila is a story about a family.  I could tell you my side of it but it would only be part of a whole.  I can try to describe my abuelito Ezequiel and how much I loved the warmth of his leathery skin or what it was like to plant agave on the ranch he loved after he passed on.  I could tell you all manner of things but they’d only be glimpses of a bigger thing.

Our family started growing Blue Agave in the year 2000 in the highlands of Michoacan, on the land that my father and his father loved and lived on.  Before we started growing agave the land stood wild, like a scene from a western, home to horses, cows and the occasional coyote.  Today it’s an ashen green ocean which thrives beneath the Mexican Sun.

The journey from the day we first planted to the day we released Mi Casa Tequila took over eleven years.  In those eleven years our family has grown and matured in many blessed ways.  We work as a unit & share the vision of making our mark on the world a positive one.

Our long time vision is to provide an exceptional single-estate tequila at the most affordable price, while maximizing efficiency at every level of production.  We hope to build a legacy of cultural development, employment and financially aid philanthropic efforts to improve the quality of life both domestically and abroad.

Our tequila is crafted entirely from Blue Agave which we farm ourselves.  We don’t come from a long line of tequila producers, in fact before 2000 all that lived on that land were my grandfather’s horses and cattle.  We cleared the fields and planted each agave one at a time on a humble stretch of land and since then we’ve planted another dozen lots.  What you taste when you open a bottle of Mi Casa Tequila is quite literally the spirit of our land.

We offer our tequila in three distinct offerings.  We produce an un-aged Blanco while our Reposado and Añejo have rested to their distinguished profiles in White Oak Bourbon Casks sourced from Heaven Hills Distillery in Kentucky.  Our entire portfolio has been awarded over ten times since we’ve launched in May 2011, including the high honor of being crowned the 2012 New York Spirits Competition’s ‘Tequila Distillery of the Year’ and awarded ‘Double Gold’ at the San Francisco International Spirits Competition, meaning that all 28 judges awarded us a gold.

Our Blanco tequila is smooth with a hint of peppermint and dark chocolate and is our most awarded in our line up.  It is fantastic served neat or in any cocktail.  Our Reposado is aged ten months and still carries with it the spice of the agave while introducing notes of caramel and citrus.  The eldest of our bunch is our Añejo.  Our Añejo rests for up to 30 months and in that time it develops a nice viscosity and blossoms with butterscotch and floral aromas.
