Derechito Tequila, founded in 2018 by Alberto Callejo Torre, is the epitome of cultural fusion. Born in Spain and matured in the heartlands of Mexico, Torre discovered his passion for tequila and knew he had to share it with the world. The brand name itself, Derechito, is a playful nod to the Mexican term "derecho," which means straight or neat—just like how tequila is traditionally enjoyed in its homeland.
Offering a range of aged tequilas, Derechito showcases the beautiful complexities and flavors that emerge over time. The Reposado undergoes a 9-month maturation in American oak barrels, acquiring a smooth texture and a nuanced palette of flavors. For those seeking a bit more complexity, the Añejo is given a 12-month resting period in French oak barrels, making it a symphony of rich, layered notes. But the true showstopper in Derechito's lineup is the Extra Añejo, a dream that unfolds over a 36-month aging period in American oak barrels, offering a sophisticated experience that lingers on the palate long after the last sip.
Derechito Tequila is not just a beverage; it's an invitation to explore the depths of what tequila can be—sophisticated, diverse, and infinitely sippable.
