Once a near-mythical secret amongst Los Bajos’ finest Jimadores and local families, this previously unnamed ‘private label’ tequila is finally being shared with the world as Código 1530.
Handcrafted with local Los Bajos agave, this is a tequila made in pursuit of purity; without additional sugars, flavours or additives.
As an added dimension, they have harnessed the heritage of great winemaking. Código 1530 Rosa and the aged and rested expressions spend time in some of the finest French White Oak red wine barrels sourced from Napa Valley, California.
We love this house’s dedication in developing and finessing the spirit, and we’re blown away by their commitment to ‘the art of slow’.
Established in 1530, the town of Amatitán, Jalisco is the birthplace of tequila production. It’s a town rich in heritage, as artisan skills are handed down from each generation of jimadores and tequileros to the next.
The Amatitán family who produce Código 1530 have been refining and perfecting their craft for over five generations, guardians of this collection of exceptional spirits.The word codigo itself refers to ‘Los Codigos’, the centurires-old codes, customs and methods which guide every element of producing the tequilas. The brand emblem, the Jerusalem Cross is part of this heritage, a reference to the Jalisco Coat of Arms.
