Mountain Grown

Our Blue Agave is grown in the red soil of the mountains of Jalisco, Mexico. These Highlands are particularly well suited to growing the Suavecito Blue Agaves. Our plants are slightly smaller, contain less water and produce a higher quality sugar.

Distilled Only Once

We start with quality ingredients. We staff a team of growers that regularly test the soil to ensure only the best of growing conditions.  Suavecito needs to be distilled only once to produce a smooth and 100% authentic taste.

Rested in American Oak Barrels

Different barrels contribute unique flavors and distinct characteristics to Suavecito. Suavecito is rested in specially selected American Oak barrels to ensure that it’s 100% smooth.

Tapatio 110 is the 2013 Tequila Aficionado Brands of Promise Gold Medal winner in the Overproof category.

Itap110mported by: Marko Karakasevic Distributed by: Jeff Couch and Vaughn Halyard, the co-partners of Congenial Spirits. Carlos Camarena, the third generation master distiller of El Tesoro de Don Felipe and the equally famous and classic Tequila Tapatío was given the red carpet treatment he deserved when Tequila Tapatio finally made its way to the United States. Read the full story here. After 75 years of distilling in Arandas and sales across Mexico, the venerable Tapatio Tequila has arrived in the US. YES – it’s the same Tequila Tapatio you met & loved in Mexico! Distiller Carlos Camarena has developed cult like status with Tequila lovers with the quality and integrity of his hard to obtain Tapatio brand. It stands alone with its pure classic flavor profile of 100% Blue Agave Tequila from the highlands. Why is it so loved? Tapatio sets the bar for the old authentic flavor that is disappearing in modern Tequilas. Respected author, Robert Plotkin, of Bar Media and a respected Tequila writer, wrote: “Wow, Tapatio…I’m already salivating”. The Camarena Family distills 100% estate grown blue agaves. Many know the family distillery through El Tesoro and other custom Tequilas. Charbay’s father and son team distilled their Tequila there. That’s the friendship that brought Tapatio to America. True Tequila aficionados and star bartenders make the trek to Camarena’s La Altena Distillery in Arandas as a right of passage into the old Tequila world. Enlightened by Tapatio’s intriguing flavor profile, many tried to find a way to get it in the US. It took the friendship & trust of two distilling families to make it happen. Charbay Distillers is the exclusive USA Importer of the Tapatio brand. Suggested Retail: $34.00/ 1 Liter Bottle
