Description
Over 65 years ago the most authentic tequila was created. Everything about Siete Leguas oozes artisanal prowess from the jimadors in the agave fields, to the mull drawn tahona wheel and the natural open fermentation tanks. Based in Atotonilco el Alto in Jalisco, Mexico, the inspiration for Siete Leguas came in the form of revolutionary Pancho Villa and his famed horse, who galloped “7 Leguas” or 21  miles. One of his many followers was Don Ignacio Gonzalez Vargas, and with devotion, named his tequila after Pancho Villa’s horse. Today the Gonzalez de Anda family and its 7 members continue their fathers, Don Ignacio Gonzalez Vargas’ legacy with one of the traditional methods of creating tequila. 7 Leguas is still one of the oldest Mexican distilleries and is still family owned and operated. 38% alc/vol. NOM 1120.

History: The Tequila Siete Leguas distillery was responsible for producing the "original" Patron Tequila brand, before brand rights were sold to St. Maarten Spirits, owners John Paul DeJoria (Paul Mitchell Hair Products) and Martin Crowley in 1989.
