In 1982, one of the most prolific agave producing companies in the Jalisco Highlands and the country was organized under the name of Don Nacho, beginning production at 5,000 tons a year until reaching the current figure of 50,000 tons a year. This laid the foundation for starting a tequila factory.
Casa Don Nacho began in 2003 under the trade name of Tequila Don Nacho, S.A. de C.V. with the goal of creating an excellent quality product. Ignacio Hernandez Gutierrez is the founder and head of the company. After growing agave for three decades, he and his family had the vision to commence a new phase of the tequila business by supplying their factory from their own agave fields that have the highest yields and quality in the Jalisco Highlands.
