Brand story

For generations, there has been a closely guarded secret among a select group of Mexico’s most respected families and Los Bajos’ finest

jimadors:

El Tequila Privado

 

With no commercial pressure to bring this nameless and unlabeled tequila to market, El Tequila Privado only existed to satisfy the discerning palates of its benefactors. In the small village of Amatitán, a local artisan distilling family has passionately crafted these spirits, never veering from the centuries old codes and customs of Los Bajos:

“Los Códigos”

Código 1530 Rosa

Código 1530 Rosa begins with the purity of our Blanco, then is rested for 1 month in uncharred Napa Cabernet French White Oak barrels. The result is a refined spirit with a natural color as beautiful as its taste.

 

Our Rosa has rested just long enough in our fine Cabernet barrels to enrich the natural agave juice, without overpowering its delicate floral notes.

 

Production Notes:

We source only the finest Napa Cabernet French White Oak barrels to age our Rosa. We leave our Rosa barrels uncharred, allowing the Cabernet to interact directly with the tequila imparting a subtle pink hue and light floral finish.

 

Tasting Notes:

Leads with bright agave character and finishes with the soft floral notes of Cabernet

Código 1530 Blanco

Código 1530 Blanco is the expression that best reflects the pure taste of our perfect inputs. We take pride in every step of our production process, carefully sourcing only the best ingredients to produce a spirit that requires no resting.
 

Production Notes:
We only use fully mature agave aged over 7 years, ensuring each agave’s Brix level (sugar content) meets our high standards.
Our Blanco is unrested, never touching a barrel, so that the rich flavor of agave can be fully appreciated.

 

Tasting Notes:
Earthy, mineral character that balances the citrusy sweetness beautifully.

"If it's not your favorite, you haven't tried it."

Código 1530 Reposado 

Código 1530 Reposado combines the purity of our Blanco and the elegance of our ageing process. Aged for six months in the finest Napa Cabernet French White Oak barrels, Código 1530 Reposado embraces the agave-driven flavours of Los Bajos tequila, with subtle hints of many of the signature flavours found in whiskeys.


Production Notes:
Our barrels are charred by hand on-site at our private distillery in Amatitán. We age our tequila to taste instead of time, adhering to a time-honoured family ageing process.

 

Tasting Notes:
Bright, sweet agave notes with the added complexity of vanilla, toasted caramel and subtle cocoa powder
