Angry Orchard

Our (lucky) cider makers travel the world in search of the very best cider apples. After touring countless orchards in the U.S., France and Italy, it dawned on them that some of the best apples for making cider actually look gnarly and angry, unlike apples you’d find at the grocery store. The apples produce more tart and tannic juice, so they are perfect for cider.

Tres Generaciones

In 1973, on the 100-year anniversary of the Sauza family distillery, Don Francisco Javier held a dinner to celebrate the Dons who came before him – and raise his glass to all they had endured in creating one of the most influential tequila houses ever founded. It was during this dinner that Don Francisco served his guests a never-before-seen spirit, housed in 100 green ceramic bottles and engraved with the faces of the ‘Three Dons.’  These was one of the first añejo tequilas ever served, having been tucked away and aged for over a year in the cellars of ‘La Perserverancia’ distillery just for this occasion. And so, Tres Generaciones was born, designed by Don Francisco Javier to put tequila on the map among the world’s best spirits.
