Rey Sol Tequila
Casa San Matas has been making tequila since 1886, making it one of the oldest family tequila distilleries in Mexico. It was during the revolutionary era that Don Delfino Gonzales sprung on the opportunity to channel his passion into making the famous Mexican spirit. In 1940 the distillery was relocated to Ojo de Agua in the Los Altos region of Jalisco. They were the first distillery to introduce an extra-aged tequila to the Mexican market in the 1990s the San Matas Gran Reserva. With more than 130 years of tequila-making behind them, they are just as passionate about tradition as they once were. Majestic Rey Sol tequila was launched in 1998, just as the first International Space Station brought mankind closer to the sun. The depiction of the sun on the beautiful decanter was designed by Mexican artist Sergio Bustamante. It's a traditionally-crafted spirit, made from Casa San Matas' own agaves, grown in the mineral-rich soil of the Jalisco Highlands. These are first baked for 48 hours at exactly 194F. The cooked agaves are then milled and natural spring water is added. The juice ferments for 72 hours in fermentation tanks, before being distilled slowly at a low temperature. Finally, the tequila is aged for 6 years in French and American white oak barrels.
