Maracame Blue Agave grows in the red soil of the highlands of Jalisco. Agave grows differently in different regions and the highlands of Jalisco are renowned as the finest Tequila producing region in the world, becoming the origin of the best tasting tequilas. Since the foundation of the first distillery in the area in the early 1600s, Jalisco has been sharing with the world the very best of Tequila.
Founded in 1938 Maracame has been consistently harvested and produced pure agave tequila in Arandas Jalisco and generations of family have followed in the tradition of hand crafting the finest quality tequila. Eighteen prized fields have grown the maturer Agave that is the source of these popular Tequilas. At these higher elevations Agave roots have to grow deeper pulling more minerals from the soil resulting in more sugar and complexity of flavor producing superior flavored tequila.
Enjoy, savor and share these smooth and historically rich Tequilas and make our family’s traditions part of your own.
Maracame is a tequila brand made in the heart of Jalisco Mexico, from the heart of the very finest blue Agave. Steeped in the ancient traditions of the Huichol people and adorned in beaded emblems created by the Huichol today, the smooth and nuanced experience of Maracame Tequilas truly shares the very heart of Mexico.
The Huichol (Wixaritari) civilization extends back 15,000 years. The Huichol people today live mostly in the mountains above Mazatlán but many make an annual pilgrimage to their point of origin in San Luis Potosi to commune with spirits of the past. As descendants of the earth the Huichol believe in appeasing nature to retain balance in the environment.
Their distinctive, colorful beaded craft works are deeply laced with different elements of Huichol traditions and beliefs. Maracame is proud to share and support this generational artisan tradition with every tequila bottle.
