Tequila El Gran Jubileo
El Gran Jubileo was created with the philosophy that better ingredients and an unhurried process create the ultimate sipping tequila. Located in the town of Tequila, the small distillery hand selects only the finest estate-grown agaves. Thus begins the transformation through old world craftsmanship into the pure and savory product Tequila El Gran Jubileo.
