History of the brand
"In the year 1761 the Camarena family co-founded the town of Arandas in Los Altos region of Jalisco; this family was the first to plant blue agave in the region of Arandas and to mark forever the history of this region.
One hundred years later, in 1861, Pedro Camarena Ramírez was born, founder of the first tequila distillery in Arandas and father of a lineage of renowned tequila producers.
His distillery was burned down during the Mexican Revolution and all that remains is the Tahona stone that stands proudly at El Pandillo Distillery.
Primo 1861 is a tribute to his legacy...
Reunion Pedro Camarena Ramírez's son was a co-founder of Tequila Cazadores, but his death broke the continuity of his lineage.
Felipe J. Camarena, renowned Tequila Master, invited the great-great-grandson of Pedro Camarena Ramírez to reconnect his tequila origins and create his own tequila... thus Tequila Primo 1861 was born.
His great-great-grandson, Pedro Camarena, still owns the ring which has been passed down through at least 5 generations in the direct line of Pedro Camarena Ramirez. The ring contains an armorial with the heraldry of the Camarena family, a gold hourglass on a field of gules.
Name The name Primo comes from the etymology "first, original, first in order of time", from Latin primus "first, the first, first part," figuratively "chief, principal; excellent, distinguished, noble"."
