#7 of 11 in Breweries & Distilleries in Tequila
The tequila family legacy begins to consolidate with Eduardo Orendain Orendain, important figure in the history of Magdalena and Tequila, since the second decade of the twentieth century founded Tequila Orendain de Jalisco, SA, continuing the family tradition since 1844. From that time, and the consolidation of the tequila industry, the name Orendain has been an important part of the tequila industry.

His descendant, Don Eduardo Orendain González, married Doña Mercedes Hernández Montano, who shared his passion for the tequila. His greatest legacy is the love and care for the field, because there grow the wonderful fruit to produce the best tequila.

The market grew very fast so he settled in the distillery La Mexicana, which still owned by the Orendain family in second direct generation.

He was founder and first president of the Regional Chamber of Tequila Industry and of The Tequila Regulatory Council where it can be found a bust of him.

The next generation has been promoting the Tequila Official Standard, the Denomination of Origin and have been founding members of the Tequila Regulatory Council.

His successors have taken the Tequila Ollitas, Gran Orendain and Puerto Vallarta, to the demanding palates not only of Mexico, but also to countries such as the United States, Canada, England, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Australia, Austria, New Zealand, Chile, Brazil, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Panama, San Salvador and Guatemala.

DEFINITELY A NAME THAT JUMPED OUT FROM MEDIEVAL SPAIN TO

This small distillery became what is now known as “La Mexicana” considered by many tour operators as the most traditional and one of the most beautiful for its vast fields of agave, the hill of Tequila (Tepecoste) and processes of yesteryear.

A MUST VISIT IN TEQUILA, JALISCO.

“La Mexicana” is still owned by the second generation of the Orendain Family, which has allowed the quality and tradition of their Tequilas continue conquering even the most discerning palates in Mexico and around the world.

Proof of this is that in 2015 all Tequila Gran Orendain Blanco, Añejo and Reposado were awarded with the Gold Medal and Gran Orendain Blanco with a The Great Gold Medal, recognized as one of the best spirituous beverages of the year, competing with the best whiskeys, cognacs, brandies and tequilas in the world, in the annual contest Spirits Selection in Brussels, Belgium.
