Many great social and technological advances took place during revolutionary Mexico. Don Delfino Gonzalez found this environment as the perfect opportunity to develop his passion for making tequila. It was this passion, that led Don Delfino to bring great progress to the tequila industry without losing the authenticity and value of a real tequila.

We have overcome great challenges along the way, but we've maintained a leading position in the tequila industry for more than 130 years. Just like the world around us, we continue to evolve while preserving the authenticity of our original home tequila since 1886.

Casa San Matías is like one big family. Every person is a unique individual with years of accumulated experiences and valuable background. So when you sit down to taste one of our products, you don't taste factory made but rather a family made tequila with an extraordinary history.




Blue Agaves

Casa San Matías own agave is growed and harvested in the red soil fields of the Highlands of Jalisco which are rich in iron and other minerals. Our agaves are nurtured in ideal conditions so that they reach a superior flavor.


Patiently, we wait 7 to 10 years for the agave to ripen to perfection. Then the agave farmer, or jimador, harvests it from its root, sifting the soil away and pulling the leaves off to reach the piña or heart of the agave.


Baking perfectly every time is fundamental to our process, so the time and temperature are followed with exact precision: 48 hours at 194ºF


The cooked agaves are brought to the milling area, where they are crushed to separate the juices form the fibers. This juice is mixed with natural spring water that comes from the distillery, an element that creates the unique taste found only in our products, and the unique staple of Casa San Matías.


The agave juice is then poured into fermentation tanks where it will remain 72 hours.


The fermented juice is taken to the stills where it will undergo two phases of condensation, this is done slowly at a very low temperature..


After distillation we bring the tequila into our Hacienda, where it will age into the finest White American and French oak barrels.


Each bottle is made with passion and carefully detailed. Our staff supervises constantly that they reach the highest quality standards.
