In the premium spirits category, Fraternity Spirits stands out as a beacon of quality, innovation, and cultural heritage. With over two decades of experience, this respected company has skillfully navigated the intricate landscape of the global spirits market, establishing itself as a formidable player. At the heart of Fraternity Spirits’ success is its unwavering commitment to excellence, a trait that resonates through its diverse portfolio of premium spirits, including tequila, mezcal, rum, and vodka, among others.

Hacienda Corralejo

Central to Fraternity Spirits’ narrative is the iconic Hacienda Corralejo, the birthplace of Tequila Corralejo, a flagship brand that embodies the rich Mexican tradition of tequila making. Nestled in the historic region of Penjamo, Guanajuato, Hacienda Corralejo is not just a distillery; it is a living museum, a testament to the enduring legacy of Mexican craftsmanship. The hacienda, with its picturesque landscapes and historic architecture, stands as a monument to the centuries-old traditions of tequila production, intertwined with modern practices that push the boundaries of quality and flavor.

Innovation meets tradition

Fraternity Spirits is renowned for its innovative approach to spirit production, seamlessly blending traditional methods with contemporary techniques. This fusion is exemplified in the “99000 Horas” tequila, a product that represents the meticulous aging process that spans over 11 years, from agave cultivation to the final aging stage. This dedication to the craft ensures a tequila of unparalleled smoothness and complexity, a true testament to the brand’s commitment to excellence.

The strategic presence in duty free shops and travel retail outlets around the globe has allowed Fraternity Spirits to cultivate a sense of exclusivity and allure around its brands.

Portfolio of distinction

Fraternity Spirits’ portfolio is a mosaic of premium brands, each with its own unique story and character. From the smooth and sophisticated Tequila Corralejo to the bold and traditional Mezcal Espanta Espíritus, the company offers a diverse range of spirits that cater to a variety of palates.

In light of the growing aged-spirit trend, Fraternity Spirits introduced an innovative concept that allows consumers to personalize the “aging” of their spirit to their own taste. This initiative, led by CEO Raffaele Berardi and Don Leonardo, founder of Tequila Corralejo and Ron Prohibido, offers a home-aging solution through the “Rompe las Barreras del Tiempo” kit. This kit includes Ron Prohibido, an American oak stick for extra toasting, a stylish glass decanter, and a cork stopper, enabling consumers to infuse and customize the flavor profile of their spirits conveniently at home, without the traditional investments associated with barrel aging. This approach not only democratizes the aging process but also turns it into an engaging, shareable experience, ideal for gifting and personal enjoyment.

With a keen eye on emerging trends and consumer preferences, the company is poised to introduce new products and enter untapped markets.
