The story of the Sparkle Donkey — or El Burro Esparkalo as he is better known — began as little more than a local anecdote about a humble-yet-noble creature that, in dire times, delivered liquid salvation to many who were in need. But as time passed and word of his strange, lustrous aura and invigorating, ambrosial drink spread, the Sparkle Donkey became a powerful symbol of hope — an iconic and inscrutable totem that resonates to this very day.

Much of the history of this elusive creature and the uplifting elixir he provided has only recently been discovered. The most well documented account of El Burro Esparkalo comes from a small village in Mexico where his appearance was transformative. Much like any other oral history, the villagers that witnessed the startling events first hand told their children who, in turn, told their children, and so on. It is because of this oral tradition that those of us alive today can appreciate and celebrate the tequila that bears the donkey’s name.
