Hornitos® Tequila

The Hornitos story begins with a revolution. Don Francisco Javier Sauza (or Don Franco)—descendant of Don Cenobio Sauza, founder of La Perseverancia Distillery and the man who coined the name “tequila” in 1873—was determined to bring tequila to a new height of respect and renown. As an ambassador extraordinaire for the spirit, Don Franco not only worked with the Mexican government to proclaim Jalisco, Mexico (the state where the town of Tequila is located) as the exclusive origin of genuine tequila in 1974, but also transform standards for his beloved family business. With Hornitos Reposado, Don Franco introduced the use of 10,000 gallon oak barrels called “pipones” to serve as aging vessels for his fine tequila. The pipones gave the tequila less contact with the wood, bringing out a pure agave flavor and a delicate pale gold color unique to the Hornitos Reposado. In his travels around the world, Don Franco shared his favorite creation freely, making tequila internationally famous as a taste of Mexico with the smooth, pure flavor of Hornitos tequila.

Today, the Hornitos™ family of tequilas keeps Don Franco’s legacy alive, using the same high standards to cultivate the best and most flavorful agaves and mold them into premium tequila to enjoy whether creating “Hornitails,” our version of the traditional cocktail, or savoring on its own.
