Héroe de León was created and produced to honor the late Mexican General Francisco Murguía.

Gen. Murguía, while fighting for Mexico during the Revolution, earned the nickname “Héroe de León (Hero of León)” for his role in the Battle of León in 1915 defeating Francisco “Pancho” Villa’s much larger army. 

Héroe de León was developed y Gen. Murguía’s great-grandson, Antonio Murguía, with the General’s same passion for excellence and commitment to their native Mexico and its most famous export – Tequila.


Mellow, yet rich caused by the artful articulation of agave and oak.


Young, fresh and full of liveliness.


Formidable flavor gleaned from years of aging in charred barrels.
