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.
