For generations, Codigo 1530 Tequila remained a closely-guarded secret among Los Bajos' finest jimadors. Once known as the El Tequila Privado, "the private Tequila," the private label has now been introduced to the world for the very first time. The Código 1530 range includes a Blanco, Reposado, Añejo, an Extra Añejo Tequila, and a Rosa. Federico "Fede" Vaughan is CEO & Co-Founder of Código 1530 and honorary custodian of its private recipe.
Co-Founder and Executive Chairman Ron Snyder, a longtime friend of Federico and seasoned business executive, brought the tequila to the market in 2016. The recipe for Código 1530 has been passed down and perfected for generations. The tequila is crafted using the time honored customs and traditions of the Los Bajos region as well as the town of Amatitán, the birthplace of Tequila. Código 1530 is named after "Los Códigos," the pre-colonial old world codes and customs that shaped the town of Amatitán and the Los Bajos region.
All Código 1530 Tequila expressions are made from 100% Blue Weber agave. After the agave have matured for seven to ten years, they are harvested and cooked in stainless steel ovens, where they are fermented using an organic baker’s yeast. The agave spirit is twice distilled through handmade stills. Making it smooth and delicious!
