JLP The President's Tequila Reposado rests in American oak barrels for 6 months. Each hand crafted bottle is produced at the distillery Productos Finos de Agave, in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. Produced from the finest 100% Blue Weber Agave.
JLP The President's Tequila was created to honor a history rooted in the original development of Tequila. In November of 1758, Jesus Lopez Portillo Y Galindo, the President's ancestor and governor of the Villa of Tequila in the Jalisco region, granted a hacienda to Jose Antonio in the name of King Carlos III of Spain. It was there, in 1795, that Cuervo's daughter Maria married Vincente Albino Rojas - from whom JLP's ancestors also descends - and they founded the first distillery, La Rojena. They would become the first to receive concession from King Carlo IV of Spain to develop and produce Tequila.
