El Caballito Cerrero
The Jimenez family maintains absolute respect for the quality of the 100% agave product that they produce, using only mature agaves and of the Amatitán region, having productions with Blue Agave Tequilana Weber and with Agave Angustifolia as their ancestors did. Caballito Cerrero is the result of the knowledge acquired by the Jimenez family through fifteen generations of producers of vino mezcal, tequila and agave distillate, the geographical conditions of the Santa Rita factory and the effort of a family to stay true to their convictions and traditions
This legendary, but tiny distillery in Amatitan, El Caballito, has constantly and historically been regarded as one of Mexico's top distilleries, but due to it's complicated relationship with the CRT (regulatory board of tequila), El Caballito has had trouble getting its spirits certified. The family made the decision to cease calling their product tequila, in defiance of the industrialization of the category, and to respect the agave distillation traditions within the Amatitán region where Caballito Cerrero is made. The Jimenez family uses only mature agave, including both Azul, or Blue Weber (A. tequilana) and other varieties such as Chato (A. angustifolia), just as their ancestors have for fifteen generations.
This elusiveness has led their products to reach legendary status with aficionados worldwide.
