Siete Leguas means 'seven leagues' and was the name of Pancho Villa's favorite horse, and is also a reference of the distance a man could travel by horse (21 miles) in one day. It is said, Siete Leguas ran beside the leader across the country without surrender, persevering in his mission and spirit, and as such, was the reasonn that Don Ignacio Gonzalez Vargas gave his new tequila this name, as a show of admiration for the famous Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa. From the beginning in 1952 at Fabrica El Centenario Siete Leguas has remained family owned and operated, and combines the juice from it's two distilleries, 'El Centenario' founded in 1952 and 'La Vencedora', considerd the 'modern' facility, founded in 1984. Siete Leguas- NOM 1120 is a family-run distillery owned by Juan Fernando Gonzalez- (SEE BELOW). Both distilleries make complete tequila- cooking, macerating, fermenting and distilling, two hours east of Guadalajara in the town of Atotonilco in Jalisco, Mexico.
