This is a classic style of Tequila in every sense, but, the regulatory name. Tasting like Tequila of yesteryear, before modern Tequila switched to industrialized farming and production shortcuts. This Tequilana is produced only 5 minutes away from the Tequila outskirts. With the border in sight, the denomination of origin does not apply here, meaning this unique spirit focuses on the people behind the label, their family history and the production process. The Bañuelos family has been making Tequilana since the 1970s, well before the Denomination of Origin for Tequila was defined or regulated as such.
