Jose Luis Carrera


Roughly 40 minutes east of Hautla de Jimenez, tucked within the steep, misty river canyons below the community of Rio Tuerto is the distillery, or trapiche, of Jose Luis, our producer for Paranubes. Jose Luis’ family has been making aguardiente for at least 3 generations, with his father and grandfather teaching him the trade at a very young age. For the past 35 years, he has been producing this rich, fragrant spirit as one of many means to provide for his family and we are honored to be working with him.
