Hornitos Black Barrel
Our most highly awarded tequila, Hornitos® Black Barrel®, starts as a premium, aged Añejo, then spends four months in deep charred oak whiskey barrels to give it rich, smoky flavor and a golden amber color. It spends an additional two months in specially toasted barrels for more depth and distinct complexity.

Hornitos Reposado Tequila
Boldly born in 1950, to celebrate the anniversary of Mexican independence, Hornitos® debuted as a Reposado, one of the first of its kind. We made Reposado decades before it became common practice, and to this day, it remains a symbol of our shot taking spirit.
