Casa Sauza’s history begins in 1873, when Don Cenobio Sauza founded “La Perseverancia” distillery, and began to produce his first tequilas.
Casa Sauza’s value of innovation is inspired by its founder, who introduced new practices to the tequila-making process with the ultimate goal of improving its quality, and made the first ever tequila export to the United States of America.
