“No name carries more weight, and in recent years no one has generated more buzz than Felipe Camarena.
From a long line of agaveros, his people were among the first to harvest agave in Los Altos. (His great-grandfather, Don Pedro Camarena, watched his virgin distillery burn to the ground in the Mexican Revolution of 1910 and his grandfather, Don Felipe Camarena, established the fabled La Alteña distillery, in 1937.) After working alongside his brother, Carlos Camarena—master distiller of El Tesoro, Tapatio, Ocho and Excellia—Felipe decided to blaze some new trails of his own and in 2011 he broke ground on what would become the most forward-thinking distillery in Mexico—Destilería El Pandillo.” -PunchDrink Magazine
