SAN FRANCISCO, May 2, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Héroe de León, a tequila company founded by Gen. Murguía's great-grandson, Antonio Murguía, has won a gold medal for its Reposado tequila and a silver medal for its Blanco tequila at the 2023 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Héroe de León is honored to have received this recognition from The San Francisco World Spirits Competition, which is one of the most prestigious spirits competitions in the world. Héroe de León's success at the competition is a testament to the company's commitment to excellence and its dedication to producing high-quality tequila.
Héroe de León's tequila is crafted in honor of Gen. Murguía, who earned the nickname "Héroe de León" for his role and bravery in the Battle of León in 1915, defeating Francisco "Pancho" Villa's much larger army. Like its namesake, Héroe de León Tequila embodies the spirit of heroism and excellence that Gen. Murguía exemplified during his lifetime.
"We're thrilled to receive these medals from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition," said Antonio Murguía, founder of Héroe de León. "Our team is passionate about producing tequila that honors our Mexican heritage and the legacy of my great-grandfather. Winning these medals is a testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone involved in our tequila-making process."
Héroe de León's Reposado tequila is aged for over six months in used bourbon barrels, resulting in a smooth yet rich flavor with a light nose and clean finish. Its Blanco tequila is bottled straight out of its second distillation and is known for its crisp, clean taste with a slight peppery finish.
Héroe de León can be found in select retailers across seven states with plans to continue its rapid expansion.
