The idea for CaliFino Tequila came about in 1975, when Don Jose Luna would travel to the Arandas Highlands in Jalisco to acquire the moonshine-style tequila that was not going to be sold under a label. Passing down the tradition through his family, the pure tequila samples were shared among friends who would always ask for “the family tequila.” In 2014, the Luna family was inspired to ask the tequileria to create a specific formula for the finest tequila from Arandas. After several tasting trips to the region, the family found a unique taste that honors their legacy and from there, CaliFino Tequila was born.
