Collection: Siete Leguas Tequila

Siete Leguas Tequila - In 1952, Ignacio González Vargas, founder of Casa Siete Leguas, began producing tequila using artisanal production processes. He named his tequila in honor of General Francisco Villa’s horse, El Siete Leguas.

A legua (league) is 8.1 miles; 7 leagues is the distance between many towns in Mexico.

General Villa’s horse was given this name because it ran that distance fearlessly from one town to another, always persevering, never straying, while carrying the General into battle.
