About Tequila Atanasio
Tequila Atanasio comes to the Sip Tequila portfolio from the small town of El Medineño, just 20 minutes north west of the town of Tequila. The name Atanasio comes from Spanish and Greek roots, and means “immortal,” tying closely to the brand as they pay homage to its creator, Tio Atanasio, who lived to be 103 years old. You’ll see this number on the neck of the bottle in honor of him and his philosophy that “with a little bit of Tequila every day, one can live forever.” Now, generations later, with Maestro Tequilero Don Chico Jiminez at the helm, Atanasio produces some of our favorite expressions of Tequila coming from the Valley.
