El Perro Grande Tequila was pioneered in 2019 and finally launched in Summer of 2022 - a new spirit - with an old soul.
El Perro Grande Tequila is a distilled spirit made from 100% blue agave plant that grows in Jalisco, Mexico. The blue agave plant grows with huge spikes that come up from a central core that is called the pina. After the spikes are removed, the pina is used to make tequila. High in sugar, it’s cooked and mashed, and its sugars are fermented by natural yeast that turn the sugar into alcohol. Then it’s twice distilled, some of our tequila bottled immediately to create our blanco. We age our tequila for at least 6 months in American White Oak barrels that were previously used by Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey giving our reposado and Extra Añejo tequilas their signature flavor profile.
El Perro Grande Tequila is made from 100% blue agave plant grown in Jalisco, Mexico - and nowhere else. The rules governing the production of tequila in Mexico are as strict as those for producing champagne in France. It’s how you know you’re getting the real thing.

Although heat will not damage the tequila, the pressure created from alcohol being exposed to heat for a prolonged period of time will eject the cork.
Yes, due to the differences in climate from Tequila, Jalisco to the dry climate of El Paso, Texas we have learned that in some rare cases this is possible; however remember to just pull the cork out by hand and continue to enjoy the great tequila.
