Casa Mexico is a small batch, premium tequila company. It is produced in the red volcanic soil of Arandas, the highlands of Jalisco Mexico where the finest tequilas in the world are crafted. Founder Don Buccio’s dream was to create a tequila that embodied Mexican taste and tradition. Buccio worked with a master distiller for years to create the best tasting tequila. Smooth and subtle Casa Mexico Tequila is made from 100% Blue Agave.
