Eduardo Orenain

6th Generation - Orendain

Proud of his origin, Eduardo Orendain V says he was born with tequila in his veins. The tequila heritage has already crossed five generations in his family. His great, great grandfather Eduardo Orendain was among the pioneers of tequila. 

Eduardo follows his father’s footsteps in the family business with Arette tequila made in the third oldest tequila distillery in the town of Tequila, “El Llano”. The distillery was founded in 1900, and it is where he grew up. Since he was six years old he remembers spending time in the distillery helping out, filling bottles and carrying cases of tequila to load the trucks. 

Now Eduardo has taken on the role to represent his family’s tequila across Mexico and international markets aiming to tell people how it’s made and why it tastes the way it does.

To this day his love for tequila and his family mark his path in life.
