Tequila Don Diego Santa

Tequila Don Diego Santa

Tequila Don Diego Santa. Roger Santa, son of Don Diego the founder, decided to expand their skills to Mexico in the latter part of the last century with a vision of developing a Tequila that includes the high standard production process of the European world with the unique handmade techniques that the family had been using for many years.

There was a Spanish family named Santa with a long tradition in the elaboration of high quality wines in Spain and France

After a long time of investigation and tasting of different agave liquor harvests, he found the perfect balance between smell, taste and body. With this success he named the Tequila after his father’s name “Don Diego Santa”.

After a period of time and with the idea of increasing the quality in the production process without loosing the handmade essence that gave it a distinct mark, he found just the right match to continue with the objectives of his family company: the name was “Destileria Río de Plata”.

This is how Roger Santa has continued with the exportation of Tequila Don Diego Santa™ during the last 10 years in the European market and being always at the forefront searching for strategies to improve the product’s class

The Distillery

In 1943 a small tequila distillery with the name of Destilería Río de Plata was established in Guadalajara, Mexico. Creators of Tequila Don Diego Santa™, they introduce us to three authentic and traditionally styled tequilas, handcrafted using only small pot distillation.

A commitment to quality to produce the best
Produced only by the traditional and time-proven manner of slowly cooking the Blue Agave in small batches, one small batch at a time, in stainless steel pots. This is without question an expensive and time consuming process but is the only way to make the finest quality tequilas and the only way the tequilas of Tequila Don Diego Santa™ are made.

The agave that is utilized to give life to our tequila, is cultivated in good agricultural soil for 8 to 10 years , until it acquires the ideal sugar content. In the elaboration process, this allows a maximum fermentation that is carried out with the yeasts of the field where it is developed.

After cooking the agave and extracting the nectar, the fermented liquid is distilled 2 times to achieve an absolute purity and to retain the essence of the agave.

In addition it is aged in Oak barrels to produce our varieties: “Reposado” or “Añejo”

The distillery, Rio de Plata, is one of the oldest and most respected distilleries in Guadalajara, Jalisco, and the one in charge of giving life to the Don Diego Santa Tequila.
