This follows the concept in wine making of single vineyard wines, single rancho, single estate Teqiula is a unique concept in the Tequila industry.
Rancho 'La Latilla' is a small ahmlet 1km from the distillery La Altena. There are 27 inhabitants mostly members of the Coronado family, most of who work at La Altena. La Latilla means a small piece of wood used to make a ceiling. This rancho has been in the Camarena family for 30 years. Before being planted with Agave, it was used for grazing cattle and sheep. Carlos Camarena's sister Gaby, is the owner. The rancho slopes gently from the east giving full afternoon sun exposure to the Agaves. The rancho has mature cedar and oak tress around the land. The soil is typical of the highlands with red oxide and clay and is slightly acidic.
