About Tequila Primo 1861The Camarena family legacy in Tequila continues with the release of Primo 1861 from the famous El Pandillo distillery. The date of 1861 in the name signifies the year Pedro Camarena Ramírez was born, who went on to found the first Tequila distillery in Arandas which was lost to a fire in the Mexican Revolution. All that remains of the original distillery is the heavy stone tahona now on display at El Pandillo. Felipe Camarena, invited the great-great-grandson of Pedro to reconnect with his origins in Tequila, and thus Primo 1861 was born.
Each tequila created by Felipe at El Pandillo uses a different combination of its three water sources: spring, rain and deep well and Tequila Primo 1861 is the only one produced with 100% spring water. The agaves are cooked in traditional stone ovens, crushed with the mechanical tahona known as Felipestein, and naturally fermented in both wooden and stainless steel tanks.
