About Corralejo Tequila
Corralejo Tequila was founded in 1755 and was the first commercial producer of tequila in Mexico. Today, more than 250 years later, tequila production continues at Corralejo much as it did in the past. Each Corralejo bottle is hand-blown and hand-labeled, individually numbered and registered to ensure its authenticity. Corralejo Tequila takes pride in its heritage as the top quality, handcrafted producer of Mexico’s first and finest tequila.
