«Contrary to what some might think,» says owner and tequila connoisseur Jerean Hutchinson, «tequila has evolved over the years as a sophisticated spirit, with many ‘Añejo’ tequilas rivaling fine cognacs. Our database educates customers about the subtle difference of each tequila.  We enjoy bringing the ‘art’ of tequila from its traditional production methods to the beautiful handcrafted artistry of many tequila bottles.»

Located on the plaza in the historic Town of Mesilla just 45 miles from the Mexican-American border, La Posta has been collecting premium tequilas for over 20 years. «We have some of Mexico’s rarest tequilas,» added co-owner Tom Hutchinson.  «Some have taken years to acquire, like the rare Clase Azul Ultra-Premium Anejo Tequila, which aged for 5 years, and is bottled in a stunning hand-crafted black ceramic decanter.»

Included in La Posta’s collection of over 150 different tequilas, are their own «signature» barrels of tequila – crafted exclusively for La Posta customers by both Herradura and Patron Master Distillers.

«Our Adobe Cantina y Tequileria was designed for tequila lovers like us,« states Jerean. «The beautiful hand-carved bar depicts agave farmers and trained Tequila Ambassadors greet customers with zeal for everything tequila. It is the perfect spot to savor a three-year old Anejo.»

«Of all the premiere tequila destinations, we are certainly a special one. We have an ambiance and history that can’t be replicated. Mesilla was once a prominent Wild West Town where bullfights and gunfights were common.  Across the street Billy the Kid was tried and sentenced to hang. We have hosted the likes of Pat Garrett, President Ulysses S. Grant and Kit Carson while operating as a Butterfield Stagecoach Stop. And of course when they were here there’s a good chance they were drinking tequila!« comments Tom.
