About Tequila Corraleio
Tequilera Corralejo is located in the town of Abasolo in the province of Guanajuato. This region lies immediately to the east of the province of Jalisco. The southeast corner of Guanajuato is part of the official Tequila producing zone.
There are only three distilleries in the region: Corralejo, Real de Pénjamo and Tequila de Huanímaro. Moreover, many of the agave piñas utilized in making Tequila are imported from neighboring areas in Jalisco. Hence, it is difficult to speak of a characteristic Tequila style in Guanajuato.
Corralejo is better known for its distinctive bottles than it is for its Tequila. The tall, almost 15-inch-tall bottles, are hard to miss on a shelf.
The Hacienda Corralejo was founded in 1755. It was the first commercial producer of Tequila in Mexico.
