Maestro Tequilero Jesús Hernandez keeps us grounded and oversees production at our birthplace, the Destilería Colonial de Jalisco in Los Altos, where he has been the Maestro for 17 years. Managing every part of production, from the harvesting of agave to the aging of our Reposado, Jesús pours his passion into every bottle of Altos Tequila. A Jalisco native himself, Jesús spent many years studying architecture and bottle manufacturing in the USA and brought his knowledge back to Mexico to help construct our distillery. His son, also named Jesús, provides tours of the distillery. We like to keep it in the family.

Armed with coas, our 100% full-time dedicated jimadores help us score the best agave in the field, gathering 60 tons of agave every day. Our multi-generational team has passed on the art of agave harvesting for decades.

Our reposado tequila is aged for 6-8 months in former whiskey barrels, instilling a robust, yet pleasant body of agave, vanilla, and woody notes. Each of these cask contains 380 bottles of Altos Tequila, so you can say we get our barrel’s worth.

Our agave is so important that we rally it for use even after it’s made its way into our tequila. 98% of all organic waste from production is composted and reused to grow the next generation of agave. In fact, the total amount of non-recycled material per year could fit inside the trunk of a car- just don’t put it in ours.
