Tequila Villa Lobos is the result of a friendship and close collaboration with two of the worlds most respected and trusted authorities on Tequila: Carlos Camarena and Dale Sklar. Agave used for Villa Lobos is entirely harvested by agaveros from the Camarena Family plantations in Los Altos, the celebrated Arandas highlands, thus ensuring only the sweetest & most mature are used. Villa Lobos is a perfect example of handcrafted Tequila made with passion and care in the traditional way. Made by Carlos in one of the last distilleries of its kind, where production is done by hand in the old fashioned way…slowly and with ‘Corazon’ meaning heart. Carlos, like his father before him, Don Felipe, regularly walks through the agave fields to see how the plants are developing, the source of the ‘juice’ that ultimately after crushing, fermentation and double distillation become Tequila Villa Lobos.
