Born from a long line of Master Tequileros with a deep reverence for agave, Francisco established Tierra de Agaves in 1992, after selling his stake in the family business, keeping his shares of the agave fields to create a premium tequila made with the only the highest integrity, quality, and approachability.
Instilling his love for his craft into his family, he passed along the tradition to his son, Jorge Beckmann, who became president of Tierra de Agaves in 2005.
Today, Lunazul is still a family-run operation located
in the heart of Tequila, Jalisco, where it’s proud to
continue its mission of creating only the finest, 100%
agave premium tequilas.
With familial ties to the world’s oldest
Tequila dynasty, our hands have
cultivating the clay of Jalisco for over
seven generations. When you’re
into the world’s longest line of
Tequila producers, you understand the
importance of tradition. Today, we
continue to craft and perfect our 100%
Blue Agave Tequila so you can raise a
glass and Toast to Tradition.
Jorge Beckmann grew up among his family's agave fields,
where he gained firsthand experience growing, distilling,
and bottling exceptional tequilas. Since 2005, Jorge has led
the operations of Tierra de Agaves as the distillery's
President. In his role, he sets the standard for crafting
Lunazul and creating tequilas that honor his family's legacy.
Francisco Quijano is a veteran of the tequila industry who’s
made it his life’s mission to promote and protect the
authentic values of tequila and led the effort to designate the
blue agave fields of Jalisco as a UNESCO World Heritage
Site. He came to Tierra de Agaves in 2007 as Master
Tequilero and personally tastes every batch of tequila to
ensure the unparalleled consistency Lunazul is known for.
Growing up in the fields of Tequila, Jose was born into the
agave-growing business. His father, agave legend Don Jose,
passed down his knowledge and instincts as Jose grew from a
young Jimador to a Master Agave Grower. Today, he leads a
team of agricultural engineers and oversees more than four
million agave plants as Lunazul’s Master Agave Grower.
