Gila Tequila Reposado is 100% de Agave, aged at least 2 months in white oak barrels, and produced at Industrializadora de Agave San Isidro. It is named after the "Gila Monster", the poisonous lizard that lives in the deserts of the United States and Mexico.
Flowing Southwest from its rugged mountain source, the Gila River gives rise to desert flowers and haunting lore alike. It’s no surprise that it shares its name with the brilliantly beaded and legendarily venomous Gila Monster.
Today, GILA is also a premium tequila reputed to have almost supernatural powers of its own. The story of GILA Tequila is as old as its namesake, the elusive lizard called Eemuukwee by Indians of Mexico. As beautiful as it is deadly, the Gila Monster is believed to have magical healing powers, No Shaman’s medicine basket was complete without a piece of the reptile’s tail.
