Certified additive-free Añejo has been aged to perfection for an average of 24 months, a year longer than required. On the nose, the new Añejo delivers aromas of clove, grapefruit peel and golden pineapple anchored in tobacco resin and soft, creamy vanilla. Silky on the palate, and equally dimensional and bright in color and clarity, Santo Tequila Añejo, has a full and long-lasting finish led by peppery cedar, dried desert sage and juicy, green melon.

The first tequila of Atotonilco!
The “El Viejito” distillery is a family owned company founded by Mr. Indalecio Núñez Muro in 1937 in the municipality of Atotonilco, in the “highlands” of the state of Jalisco. The Highlands offer excellent conditions for tequila production, among other things for having the best land, climate, water and altitude for growing Agave, and thus for the quality of the tequilas produced in this area.
“El Viejito” started to export tequila in 1964 and in 1986 was rewarded with the “National Quality Award”. In 1992 “El Viejito” received recognition as a “high quality exporting company and for participating in the international market and for its contribution to the creation of jobs” both from the Mexican Authorities.
Mr. Indalecio, and both his sons Jorge and Antonio were all Presidents of the National Tequila Industry Association and “El Viejito” was one of the founders of the Tequila Regulatory Council in 1994.
El Viejito currently exports or has exported to countries such as The United States of America, Germany, France, Chile, Italy, Greece, Japan, Australia and the Philippines.
“El Viejito” started operations in 2007 at its new distillery. High quality water, ripe agave, lots of experience combine to continue producing tequila as we did since the beginning. We take no shortcuts, in fact we are improving on perfection!
Modern and efficient facilities, joins commitment and integrity to improve social and economic development. In addition and in reflection of company values, “El Viejito” is currently in the process of obtaining a “clean industry” certification, and has just recently been certified in HACCP.
