Trianon Blanco’s incomparably smooth taste is made possible only through the sacrifice of both the head and tail of the tequila. By bottling only the virgin distilled heart of Blue Weber Agave, our Blanco captures the truest tequila taste--untainted by any hint of the biting alcohols found in other tequilas. Its clarity and purity makes it the choice of connoisseurs and the foundation of our award-winning Reposado and Añejo.
The remarkable success of our Reposado is owed to beginning with our uncompromising Blanco. The transformation occurs when we rest our Blanco in specially made American and French Oak barrels for six months—four months longer than Mexican law requires. The result is a true agave taste and smoothness combined with complex notes of aged oak.
We age our Blanco a full eighteen months in specially made American and French oak barrels to make Trianon Añejo. Because that’s how long it takes to strike the perfect balance between the taste of oak and agave. We could stop at 12 months like other makers—but by now you know that’s not the Trianon way. Aging longer allows the oak’s rich flavor to reach its full expression, perfectly complimenting the true agave taste of our tequila. With its warm, amber color and sweet aroma, our Añejo is best savored neat.
And, a reminder of what so many large-scale makers lose sight of. True tequila taste starts and ends with the purity of the Blanco. That’s why it’s on top. It’s the first, youngest and boldest expression of the Blue Weber Agave. Its purity alone is the single strongest factor in determining the success of the tequila as it matures to a remarkable Reposado, or the even older Añejo. It’s the true taste of tequila captured in our Blanco that shines through our Reposado and Añejo and makes Trianon the choice of the true tequila connoisseurs everywhere.
True tequila doesn’t smell like alcohol. It holds the sweet, earthy aroma of the blue weber agave it’s made from—even once it’s been distilled. Maestros Tequileros (Master Tequila Distillers) have known this for generations. And we use this simple test to determine whether our own tequila has captured the true taste of blue agave.

Now smell what’s in the tequila bottle. You’ll find that only Trianon has the same rich blue agave scent as you smelled in your hands. Other tequilas just smell like alcohol. That’s because our family takes the time to make our tequila from only the agave-rich heart of true small batches—the only way to capture the true taste of true blue agave.
Our family has been making tequila here in Amatitán for three generations—using the passed-down traditions and techniques that were born here in this region. Now my brother Saúl and I are the Maestros Tequileros (Master Tequila Distillers) of the family. We watch over every batch of Trianon Tequila to make sure it captures the taste of a true tequila. Not a single bottle of Trianon leaves our facility without meeting our approval.
When other brands say they make their tequila in small batches, we’re not exactly sure what they mean. Because most other brands are mass-produced. We prefer to make our tequila only when conditions are perfect and the timing is right. And when we do make Trianon, we only choose the most ideal blue agave plants to prepare for distillation. Then, once we’ve distilled the juice, we throw out all but the purest heart of the liquid. Because nothing is more important to us
than true flavor.
The distilled liquid that comes from our blue agave (we call it “juice”) is made up of three parts: the “head” (the top 15%), the “tail” (the bottom 15%) and the “heart” (the center of the batch). We could bottle it all like everyone else, but the truth is that the true taste of tequila comes only from the heart of each distillation. The alcohol found in the head and tail actually gets in the way of taste. So we throw those parts out and bottle only the heart of the “juice,” where the purest agave flavor lies—something major brands cannot
afford to do.
Patience is something that has been passed down in our family. Even though Mexican law says that Tequila Reposado must age for two months, and Tequila Añejo should age for twelve months, we believe it takes much longer for aged tequila to reach its full potential. Every bottle of Trianon Reposado is aged six months in our unique blend of American and French oak, and we leave our Trianon Añejo a full eighteen months. This allows us to find the perfect balance of oak and tequila.
You’ll find our family’s distillery in the town of Amatitán in the state of Jalisco, Mexico. People around here say that, centuries ago, this was home to the very first tequila distillery. And if you visit, you’ll see why. Amatitán sits at the foot of El Volcán de Tequila (the Volcano of Tequila), where the rich, volcanic soil makes our Blue Weber Agave grow larger and more luscious than anywhere else. We even use the naturally occurring yeast from the area during fermentation, not synthetic yeast like other brands. It’s like this place was born to make true tequila—kind of like our family.
You won’t find any automated machinery here. Just hard-working people who believe in making tequila the traditional way—by hand. From when we harvest our blue agave to when a batch leaves our facility for delivery, we do it all ourselves. And what little equipment we do use… well, we often make that ourselves too. Even our labels are hand-painted and polished by a local family business, just like our handcrafted corks and bags. And our signature Triple Bottles are hand-blown by a local artisan, so every one is unique.
Our family takes great care to make each of our tequilas the same way we have for generations—by hand. We think that’s the only way to make tequila that captures the true taste of blue agave. So, that’s what you’ll find in every bottle of Trianon: True agave taste with a smooth and satisfying finish. Try all three expressions of Trianon and discover the true taste of tequila for yourself.
