Black Barrel Tequila

Our most highly awarded tequila, Hornitos Black Barrel starts as a premium Añejo, then spends four months in deeply charred oak barrels to give it rich, smoky flavor and a golden amber color. It spends an additional two months in specially toasted barrels for more depth and complexity and a bold taste that embodies the Hornitos spirit.

PLATA TEQUILA

Making 100% pure agave tequila with 0% compromise

Reposado

Our Reposado rests for at least two months in large oak vats to ensure minimal contact with the wood, giving it a livelier agave taste than most wood-treated tequilas.

AÑEJO Tequila

We age our Añejo in white oak barrels for at least a year, so it has a smoother, more complex flavor and a distinctive amber color.

Cristalino Tequila

We took a shot at making our smoothest tequila yet - and succeeded.
