Alberto Callejo was born in the picturesque region of Ribera del Duero.
known for its winemaking tradition that had endured in his family for generations.
In 2015, Alberto's life took an unexpected turn when he moved to Mexico. Alberto launched a boutique advertising agency, www.napoleonagencia.com which quickly became a local reference in branding and marketing strategies, attracting numerous Mexican tequila producers looking to refresh the products.
After establishing professional and personal relationships with numerous tequila families in the Valles region (Valle De Tequila), Alberto's affection for the Blue Weber and the cask ageing led him to dream of creating Derechito Tequila.
After he brought together his roots and present: creating the
first tequila aged in Ribera del Duero barrels with the limited edition Derechito Rosé Cillar De Silos & Familia Callejo
After discovering the world of Tequila, with Derechito Tequila, our love for the Maguey world was asking for more:
We spent the whole of 2020 and 2021 travelling around all Mezcal producer's states, discovering and meeting different maguey, techniques and great people with two purposes:
On the one hand, returning to the roots:
Develop Agave Spirits using the ancient traditional techniques of México.
On the other hand, leaving a mark: Developing a product that is inclusive, sustainable, and fair to all the communities involved:
Helping all these families to sell their products and internationalize them.
