Carmesí Tequila

With over 120 years of experience and tradition, Casa San Matías produces some of the world’s finest tequilas. These expressions are made from only the best blue agave, harvested from the rich soil of the Los Altos de Jalisco region, and distilled with the purest spring water. The outcomes are unique tequilas that preserve the legacy of flavor and quality at Casa San Matías.

Casa San Matías was founded in 1886 by Don Delfino González in Magdalena, a small town located west of Tequila, Jalisco. In the 1950s a new distillery was opened in Ojo de Agua, at altitudes above 6,000 feet. The fruitful grounds of Los Altos de Jalisco provide some of the purest spring water in the region. This allows the distillery to produce a wide variety of superior tasting tequilas, all from 100% blue agave. Today, the leadership of Casa San Matías is bestowed in Ms. Carmen Villarreal, the world’s only female distillery head, who leads her team in creating the best tequilas in the region which satisfy the most demanding consumers.

Carmesí was introduced in 1999, and is an exquisite tequila with a smooth taste and an elegant presentation to satisfy the most refined palates. Aged for 11 months in American white oak barrels, it is the color of golden straw. Carmesí is the perfect tequila for celebrations, and pairs well with seafood, especially lobster.

Tasting note: Aged 11 months for a smooth, subtle flavor with floral aromas and notes of white peach. The finish is long and amazingly soft.
