The Highlands (Los Altos de Jalisco) is a sub-region within the Tequila Denomination of Origin. Our Highland Tequila, Siembra Azul, is produced by Vivancos y Asociados (NOM 1414). For generations, the Vivanco family has exemplified the entrepreneurial Alteño tradition in Arandas, Jalisco.
The Vivanco family has built various enterprises in their community, but agriculture was always a principal focus of the family. Traditionally, they grew corn, sorgo, and alfalfa, and began cultivating Blue Agave in the early 1800s.
In 1990, the Vivancos built an artisanal distillery, affectionately referred to as “Mi Ranchito,” and began producing their own tequila with remarkable results in 1994.
David Suro-Piñera ventured to Arandas in 2005 to search for partners in the next stage of his lifelong mission to elevate and celebrate the spirit of Jalisco. He was intrigued by the Vivanco family’s attention to detail and the expertise of their team.
