A Journey Back to 1707: The Birth of Lobos 1707
Picture Los Altos de Jalisco, Mexico, in the year 1707. Here, in the heart of agave country, Blue Weber agave thrived under the care of skilled jimadors. Little did they know that their labor would give birth to a legend – Tequila. But it was Diego Osorio, the great-great-grandfather of Lobos 1707's founder, who would elevate this agave elixir to new heights.
Diego Osorio, a man of curiosity and ambition, transported Tequila in sherry wine barrels back to his native Spain. As he uncorked those barrels, he discovered alchemy within – the marriage of agave and sherry-bathed oak, birthing a Tequila of unparalleled smoothness and elegance.
