"The beautiful straw/gold color of this tequila belies a complex layer of vanilla on the spirit’s spicy soul. The palate showa an indulgent kiss of oak that frames the dried herbaceous flavors of agave in a noble and complex way." 95 Points, 2019 Ultimate Spirits Challenge
Literally a "paradise" created by Don Felipe Camarena and Alain Royer of A. de Fussigny Cognac, this unique, handcrafted blend of 100% blue agave extra anejo tequila takes on a remarkable elegance from its distinct, Cognac-barrel aging process.
It’s no coincidence “El Tesoro” means “The Treasure.”
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.
