Why we love this Tequila Flight
Back in my early days in Tequila, around 2009, whispers of a new distillery from one of the Camarena brothers started floating through the airwaves, and everyone's skin bristled with excitement. If Felipe was behind it, something magical was coming. And magical indeed it is. The El Pandillo distillery, situated on a long dirt road in the small highland town of Jesus Maria, is a mastery of engineering and expanded thought on the production of Tequila. Originally, Felipe exclusively produced G4 at El Pandillo but over the years, the portfolio of expressions has grown, along with our marveling and amazement for the diversity of products that come from a single distillery. The water source here plays an important role, as El Pandillo has access to three: rainwater catchment, deep well, and natural spring.
Here, with the El Pandillo flight, you have the opportunity to explore the full range of abilities from an unconventional Master Tequilero who combines modern engineering, and ancient artistry.
