In the early 1990’s Iñaki Orozco inherited a very special piece of land, handed down in his family, for over 200 years. When the Guerra de Independencia de México (Mexican War of Independence) was being fought, the highlands of Jalisco had served as a key battlefront. Iñaki’s ancestor, Maria Higinia Gomez served as a high counselor to the Mexican rebel leaders in this time and for her service, she was granted 10,000 acres of land. Most of the land, she gave away to revolutionaries who fought for Mexico’s freedom, but the 250 acres she kept, is the land handed down to, Iñaki, and where he founded Riazul Tequila.
