Out of 120 Tequila producing distilleries, 15 were chosen for their historical presence and consistent quality. Dos Siglos Tequila represents years of Tequila production, where equal amounts of 100 percent Agave Tequilas from 15 top brands are blended to create this new commemorative and celebratory spirit.
