Don Buccio grew up in a traditional Mexican household and the neighborhood considered his home the epicenter of Mexican American culture. Don Buccio still remembers how his parents would welcome family and friends from all backgrounds to gatherings, serving tequila and uniting the community through authentic experiences and honoring traditional Mexican heritage and culture.
Don Buccio’s father worked for a tortilla company in Southern California, and from an early age, young Don Buccio would follow him along his routes absorbing all he could about the food and beverage industry. At 18, Don Buccio took a job at Pepsi, working his way up the corporate ladder over the years to become a pioneer of beverage distribution.
Don Buccio’s journey into tequila production began when he purchased some of the highest quality agave plants in Jalisco, Mexico. He has spent the last 20+ years perfecting his vision of creating a unique, yet authentic, premium agave spirit. Casa México Tequila encompasses our founder’s love for both Mexican culture and his family heritage — Rich in history. Rooted in tradition.
