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.
Hornitos® Black Barrel® Tequila
Our most highly awarded tequila, Hornitos® Black Barrel, starts as a premium, aged Añejo, then spends four months in deep charred oak 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.
