Founded in the 1900s by the Orendain family and run by Eduardo and Jaime Orendain since 1976, Arette was the name of the horse that under Humberto Mariles won 1 bronze and 2 Gold Olympic medals in jumping. The brand was introduced in 1986 to commemorate this event, which so far are the only Gold medals for Mexico in the discipline.

The house tequilas are made only from 100% Estate grown Agave. The Orendain brothers have always prioritised quality over quantity—they follow their grandfather’s footsteps by preserving the original artisanal practices.

Tasting note: Rested in steel tanks for six months. Clear. Lifted bouquet is sweet, sappy and briney in the opening stages evolving suggestions of grilled capsicum, tinned pineapple and white pepper. Medium weighted and softly textured with an attractive juicy agave / wax / pickle profile. Ends softly. Slightly short. 38% Alc./Vol.
