San Matias Tahona Tequila

San Matias Tahona Tequila

Casa San Matías is committed to honoring the tradition and legacy that were transmitted to us by our predecessors. We’re proud of being one of the oldest family tequila distilleries in Mexico. Our story began in 1886 in the town of Magdalena, Jalisco, where Don Delfino González began small-scale tequila production mainly for family & friends. His tequila quickly gained popularity in Mexico. In 1940, we relocated our distillery to Ojo de Agua in Los Altos de Jalisco. This region’s rich soil & natural spring water are fundamental to the superb flavor of all of San Matias' tequilas. Hearkening back to our roots, for our 130th Anniversary Casa San Matias decided to release a tequila made using truly old-school methods: in addition to our already 19th-Century method of brick masonry oven slow-steaming, we’re using our original stone tahona wheel from 1886 for crushing the cooked agave, open-air wooden tanks for fermentation (including the old method of including cooked agave fiber in the fermentation mosto), and vintage copper pot stills for distillation.
