Some history.

A story of a generation spanning alliance between two families: the Camarenas and the Sklars, respectively tequileros and spirit producers and importers, since the mid 1800’s. Between them, they bring 10 generations of tradition and heritage to their work. Tequila Villa Lobos is made by one of the World's most respected and trusted authorities on tequila, the Camarena family. Carlos Camarena and Dale Sklar, both sons of fathers, grandfathers & even great grandfathers whom spent their lives in the spirits business and learned almost everything from them, unite their families to create this unique, soft and gentle tequila.

Claim to authenticity.

A handcrafted tequila made with passion and care in the traditional way; the fragrant agave flavours and incredible smoothness are a testament to the skill of the maker.

'Real' fact.

  • Villa Lobos is made with 100% blue agave and estate bottled. The agave used is entirely harvested from the Camarena family plantations in Los Altos, the celebrated Arandas Highlands.

  • Unlike most distilleries that use a chain saw for speed and ease of stacking, at the Camarena distillery, each agave is chopped in half by a skilled ‘axeman’.

  • In a completely unique way, the Blanco tequila is placed in steel tanks for 6 months, or more, to allow it to rest and slowly oxidize, so its flavours and bouquet are enhanced.

  • All the Villa Lobos bottles are hand labelled, numbered & bottled at La Alteña.

We make award winning tequila.
