NOM 1603 - DGL Destiladores, S. De R.L. De C.V. - Over four generations, we have been working hard on the art and craft of growing agave and distilling tequila. To this day, we instill age-old processes and values handed down from generation to generation. Every sip and every bottle represents the continuation of the legacy we’ve worked so hard to create.
El Mayor’s tradition of tequila craft starts at the roots. El Mayor is made from only the highest quality Weber Blue Agave plants, sweet succulents that thrive in the rocky lowlands of Jalisco. At about 7,500 feet above sea level, its mineral-rich sandy soil produces the juiciest plants, giving you a taste as warm as Jalisco. Located just outside the city of Arandas, in the highlands of Jalisco, DGL sits in a prime location for the superior agave used in our premium tequilas.
DGL continues the decades-old partnership in making tequila between the Lux and Gonzalez families. Our new distillery, in true Gonzalez tradition, uses the same methodology to produce award-winning tequila as the family’s Destiladora Gonzalez Gonzalez (DGG) has been using for more than 150 years. From plant to pour, our lifelong passion for crafting tequila shines through in every variation of El Mayor tequila.
