THE DOUBLE GOLD STANDARD

Our agave plantation began in 2000 when we inherited land in the highlands of Michoacán, Mexico. It was a small and humble beginning. Determined to do our best and with love for the land and agave, we have held all levels of agriculture and production to the highest standards. Our agave piñas come in healthy, robust and measure at a 32% brix ratio (natural sugars)! The industry standard is anywhere from 26%-28%.  The natural sugars and nutrient rich highland soil translate into aromatic, complex, rich and smooth small batch tequilas.

 

Bottles w no background_small.png

At the distillery in Aranda’s Mexico we practice open air oxygenation of the spirit before it is bottled to reduce the smell and taste of ethanol. Additionally new filters are used on the machines each time we distill, to ensure a high level of quality control. The barrels we use to age our spirit were previously used for Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey. They are lightly chipped and charred beforehand, and a slight smokey flavor is present in the añejo and extra añejo expressions.

Our family is present to taste each expression of the tequila before it is approved for bottling. It is shipped and arrives to the port of Oakland. We have a bonded warehouse in San Carlos and sell direct to licensed restaurants and retailers in California and on the west coast, as permitted by law.

A few more quick details about us!

 

  • We produce highland tequila @ 6500ft. elevation
  • Mi Casa Tequila exclusively family owned and operated at all levels of operation.
  • Multiple local and international awards including a double gold in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition!
  • Single estate - we only use what we grow for ourselves.
  • Blanco is rested 6 months in stainless steel, our Reposado is aged 10 months in American White Oak & our Añejo is aged 30 months in American White Oak.
  • Sustainable - We have a rotating plantation, with up to 8 years of rest for the soil after a harvest. We also have cattle, horses, and a variety of other critters on their own portion of the land. 
  • Responsible business practices - we pay double the industry average to our plantation hands in Mexico, resulting in tangible improvements in their lives. In the pueblo near the plantation, we've funded new roads and in the USA we've worked most actively with charities and non-profits for fundraisers geared towards child services, women's services, and athletic and art scholarships.
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.
