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.
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.
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.
