" This quintessential highland blanco tequila showcases chewy caramel cooked agave on the nose, sweet, and with a slight alcohol pop. On the palate, it presents notes of bright floral and soft soil minerality with a lengthy blue agave finish." 96 Points 2022 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

This is a great sipping tequila. It’s no coincidence “El Tesoro” means “The Treasure.”
"Our Blanco tequila is unaged and bottled immediately after distillation to capture the essence of our highland blue weber agave. The minerality of our soil and water shines through in this traditional, agave-forward tequila."
The La Altena distillery was built in the mountains of Jalisco, Mexico in 1937. The unique atmospheric conditions at its high altitude gave the agave plants a higher sugar level that was ideal for making his 100% blue agave tequila. Today, Carlos Camarena—grandson of the founder, Don Felipe—supervises the harvesting of the mature agave and oversees the production of El Tesoro de Don Felipe to ensure consistency and quality.
