Master Distiller Cirilo Oropeza spent decades learning both the science of distillation and the art of tequila making. His passion for it, matched with his strict attention to detail, allowed Cirilo to dedicate himself to the dream of creating a tequila of great quality that everyone could enjoy.
In 1995 he met a local entrepreneur who shared his ambition. They formed a partnership which enabled the creation of a state-of-the-art home for this dream tequila. Destiladora San Nicolas became that home and Espolón became that tequila.
Each year Mexico marks September 16 to celebrate its Independence. This day is chosen to commemorate the 1810 uprising which saw Father Miguel Hildalgo lead the people in the first stand against the injustices of Spanish rule. The Blanco label is a fitting tribute to that occasion. Here, Guadalupe and Rosarita fight alongside Father Hidalgo, known from this eventful day forward as the father of his country. Espolón’s very own Ramón the Rooster leads the charge, setting the stage for Mexico’s revolution.
