Rey Sol Tequila

With over 120 years of experience and tradition, Casa San Matías produces some of the world’s finest tequilas. These expressions are made from only the best blue agave, harvested from the rich soil of the Los Altos de Jalisco region, and distilled with the purest spring water. The outcomes are unique tequilas that preserve the legacy of flavor and quality at Casa San Matías.

Casa San Matías was founded in 1886 by Don Delfino González in Magdalena, a small town located west of Tequila, Jalisco. In the 1950s a new distillery was opened in Ojo de Agua, at altitudes above 6,000 feet. The fruitful grounds of Los Altos de Jalisco provide some of the purest spring water in the region. This allows the distillery to produce a wide variety of superior tasting tequilas, all from 100% blue agave. Today, the leadership of Casa San Matías is bestowed in Ms. Carmen Villarreal, the world’s only female distillery head, who leads her team in creating the best tequilas in the region which satisfy the most demanding consumers.

Rey Sol Extra Añejo stands out as being a work of art from start to finish. Rey Sol’s unmistakable, striking bottle was designed by internationally recognized Mexican architect and sculptor, Sergio Bustamante. The tequila itself satisfies the most demanding of palates. Aged 6 years in French white oak barrels, Rey Sol is recommended for fine dining and pairs well with red meat. You can also enjoy it with desserts or dried fruit.

Tasting note: A sweet, full-bodied premium tequila offering notes of vanilla, oak and dried fruit. Finishes with hints of chocolate and almond.
