Why Hornitos Tequila you ask? Well, first, we love authentic Mexican Tequila and, second, it’s classy. Seriously, why not Hornitos? The history of Hornitos Tequila and its legendary founder Don Francisco Javier Sauza is long and storied. He didn’t just perfect tequila, he also helped create the rule that all tequila must be made from pure agave in certain Mexican states – or else it’s just not tequila. Did we mention he founded Hornitos® on Mexican Independence Day? So my friend, Hornitos 100% Tequila is not just any tequila, it’s completely authentic and may just set you free.
