The newest addition to Tequila Tapatio is affectionately known as 'B110.' It's a Blanco at 110 Proof - more flavors, less water!
Don Felipe Camarena was born into a family that had distilled tequila since back in the early 1800’s. The family’s original distillery was destroyed and abandoned during the Mexican Revolution. Don Felipe began his career by growing and selling agave plants to other distillers. But since tequila making was in his blood, he started distilling his own tequila, selecting only the ripest plants and using equipment from his family’s original distillery.
In 1937 Don Felipe opened La Altena distillery in the mountainous region of Jalisco, Mexico, known for producing the best blue agave. His passion for doing things just right inspired his family to continue handcrafting Tapatio so it could be enjoyed by future generations.
Don Felipe passed the business to his son, Felipe J. Camarena Orozco, who in turn passed it on to his daughters, Lilianna and Gabriela, and to his son, Carlos, who today, as Master Distiller, maintains the standards of excellence set down by his grandfather, Don Felipe.
Carlos and Marko have been scheming to create this smooth 110 proof (nicknamed “B110”) for a couple of years and are excited to see the amazing cocktails that come from it.
