“WORKING TOGETHER AND SHARING IS HOW WE LIVE. GIVING BACK WHILE ENJOYING LIFE IS WHO WE ARE.”
– SCOTT GREENBURG | PAPA BUENO FOUNDER
We distill our handcrafted tequila from the finest sun-ripened agave offered by the legendary highlands of Jalisco. The result is crisp tequila ready-made for smooth shots, bold cocktails, and unfiltered fun. We invite you to be authentic, drink responsibly and be part of the Papa Bueno family.
Be you, and you’ll earn your fun.
Working With Nature:
We know it’s best to let nature do its work before we do ours, so for seven years we patiently wait for the highland sun to craft the perfect crop. When the time arrives, the plump, ripe agave is hand-harvested and cut for the brick ovens at our distillery in the legendary tequila town of Antotonilco El Alto. Once the piña, or heart of the agave, has properly cooked it yields a warm honey-flavored nectar, and we begin the fermentation and distillation processes. That’s when the magic happens.
Everything matters – water, land, people – to making it right. If not used in the tequila, it goes back to the land. Our promise to you.
We leave distilling to the masters: Juan & Luis. A 3rd gen tequila master, Juan Eduardo Nunez of El Viejto (NOM 1107) teams with cousin Luis and a dedicated team in Atotonilco El Alto to perfect Papa Bueno’s world-class tequilas (an unprecedented 99 rating – the “BEST white tequila. Period.” The Pour Fool, Seattle PI Blog.) We love these guys! Definitely Bueno!
“IT’S THE RIGHT WATER, AGAVE, FACILITIES AND EQUIPMENT, LOTS OF EXPERIENCE AND NO SHORTCUTS. WE ARE IMPROVING ON PERFECTION.”
