Brief History of Tequila 

Tequila is a municipality of the Valles Region of the State of Jalisco, Mexico. It was initially called Tequillan or Tecuila by the indigenous people who inhabited it.This names been interpreted as: place where cuts are made or place of tributes.

Tecuila was a population commanded by Coyotl, the dominant king of the Teochinchán Valley, a rich and vast region in crops and weapons. This region was located between the current populations of Amatitán and Tequila. After the conquest, the foundations of the current town of Tequila were settled.

Our Hacienda, Quinta Sauza

This beautiful Casona (manor) dates from 1836. It was built by Don Jesús Flores Ámola for the Gallardo González Rubio Family. It was first given the name of Quinta del Retiro and was inaugurated with a great ball, to which great personalities from Guadalajara and Mexico City were invited.
At the Quinta, many prayers of Guadalupe Gallardo are saved. They are prayers that show a deep love for God and for his Family. With the passing of time, a cousin of Ana González Rubio, Widow of Guadalupe Gallardo, known as "Doña Perla",  inherited the property and offered it for sale to Don Francisco Javier Sauza in 1973 who, without thinking it twice, bought it, since he considered it to be an excellent option for his retirement. He changed its name to its current name:  Quinta Sauza.
