NOM 1127 - Tequilera la Gonzaleña, S.A. de C.V. - Tamaulipas, a state to the east that borders Mexico's gulf. This terroir gives Chinaco a considerably different character than most Jalisco tequilas. It is the only licensed distillery in Tamaulipas altogether.
Everything in Tamaulipas is a little different. The soil is a mix of types, quite different from the clay you will find in Jalisco, and the distillery’s location, less than 50 miles from the Ocean, offers uniqueness, too. Even the agave growing elevation — ranging from 500 to 5000 feet — spans what would be considered both highland and lowland growing areas in Jalisco.
