El Caballo Estrella Tequila Añejo
El Caballo Estrella Tequila Añejo is 100% Agave and aged in oak whiskey barrels from Europe for over 12 months.
In one of the smaller town in Mexico called Santa Ines, Michoacan, Don Pedro Barragan lived with his 9 children and 42 grandchildren.
Don Pedro's family worked 9 months out of the year on a remote Ranch called “El Volcancillo”, a dairy farm operation. The only way to get there in the old days was either by walking or riding a horse. They had to go across dangerous canyons and cliffs, taking 7–8 hours to get there.
My grandfather had a horse named "Estrella”, and when I was a small child, I had to walk to get to his ranch because I was afraid that the horse would fall down the cliffs. My grandfather was concerned that I had to walk such a long distance, and he insisted that I ride his horse and he would say, "I would never put you in danger, it is true that some horses are brave, but if you will trust me, I will let you ride my gentle horse “Estrella” and if you like the way he rides, I will give him to you."
I did not hesitate and I put myself in my grandfather’s hands and I rode his horse “Estrella”. The ride was very smooth and Estrella was so careful walking through the narrow paths to the ranch. Every time I went to visit my Grandfather again, Estrella came to me and pushed me with his head, asking me to ride him again.
El Caballo Estrella Tequila was created in honor of the gentle, beautiful horse "Estrella" and my lovely Grandfather.
