Casa San Matías is committed to honouring the tradition and legacy that were transmitted to them by their predecessors. They are proud of being one of the oldest family tequila distilleries in Mexico. Their story began in 1886 in the town of Magdalena, Jalisco, where Don Delfino González began small-scale tequila production mainly for family and friends. His tequila quickly gained popularity in Mexico. In 1940, they relocated their distillery to Ojo de Agua in Los Altos de Jalisco. This region’s rich soil and natural spring water are fundamental to the superb flavour of all of San Matias' tequilas.
In 1993 Casa San Matias introduced the first Tequila Extra Añejo to the world, San Matías Gran Reserva. In 1998, they went even further with Rey Sol. For Rey Sol, two pieces of art merge into one. From the creation of the decanter, designed by famous Mexican artist Sergio Bustamante, to the traditional method of production and its 6 years of aging in new French Oak barrels in the Hacienda San Matias, Rey Sol provides one of the most sublime experiences to ever grace a tequila. Majestic in every sense.
100% Blue Agave, aged six years in new French Oak barrels. Intense bright amber with orange and copper highlights, with strong body and ever-so-slow forming legs. Initial aromas of oak, chocolate, vanilla, hazelnut, roasted almonds, and dried fruit. At the start of the palate, it is sweet and huge in body, where the oak notes are dominant, and delivers a long lasting finish of chocolate and almond flavours.
