Made at Destiladora del Valle de Tequila- NOM 1438 in the lowlands (El Valle) region of Tequila, Jalisco. The distillery is known as “Casa Maestri” and is one of the most productive. Pedro Quintanilla, the founder of Los Azulejos, is a Tequila connoisseur. His grand father was a prominent grower of Blue Agave and owned a Hacienda in the state of Jalisco where he produced an exquisite tequila for his family, friends and workers but he never commercialized it. Decades later, Pedro, aware of the notorious development of Tequila and it's demand around the world, was convinced his grandfather's recipe could go even further, and Tequila los Azulejos was born.
This limited edition of exquisitly hand-crafted ceramic bottles is inspired by the masterpieces created by Pablo Picasso. It is a must have for any tequila collector. There are 6 different paintings designed by Mexican artisans in the town of Puebla - the home of talavera ceramics. It is fitting that these unique decanters store such incredible tequila.
