Quita Penas is another tequila produced at Tequilera Corralejo and therefore has suffered a similar fate of the other products from this distillery in the Mexican State of Guanajuato. Like the Corralejo line of tequila, Quita Penas, which was once a 100% agave product is currently only available as a mixed version. The bottle above is from the collection of Tim Carter and is labeled as 100% agave. Current bottles are not. This is not to say that this would be a bad tequila but you should be advised that though the new bottles look exactly like the original product, the phrase "100% de Agave" is no longer printed on the label.

PLEASE NOTE: The copy above was written during a well-documented agave shortage that existed over 5 years ago. Tequila Corralejo dealt with these issues in a legal and honorable manor making the best of those difficult times. I'm happy to report that Tequila Corralejo is now back to using 100% Blue Agave (and has been for several years now), grown in the "denomination of origin" in all tequila produced at their factory. I will elaborate on these details as soon as time permits but let it be known that this tequila and all others from this well respected company are 100% Agave. Of course, there are many areas of this site in need of updates as the industry is hard to keep up with but it was important to note this fact right away. I would personally buy and recommend any tequila from this storied, Guanajuato distillery.
