The name Abreojos comes from a little fishing village in Baja California Sur called Punta Abreojos. Abreojos translated from Spanish means “Open Eyes.” In this quiet little fishing village lies a pristine beach with a wrapping right hand point surf break. Not a highly traveled tourist destination, but more of a surf get away to avoid crowds at nearby spots or even the craziness of Southern California. Some believe that Punta Abreojos was named in the late 1500’s by Juan Cabrillo who led the first European expedition. Others believe that Fishermen named Abreojos for the Open Eyes they saw coming back in after fishing. What they saw were perfect breaking hollow waves, and the offshore winds spraying water into the air to resemble an eye with long lashes.
Abreojos is the Next Generation of tequila; original, bold, creative, contemporary. Our Master Distiller Luis Gabriel Orendain Robles is the “Next Generation” tequila producer in a family with generations in the craft. Most brands are expensive because you pay for the bottle instead of the tequila. It should be about what is in the bottle. Abreojos Tequila, favored by those looking for unparalleled smoothness, but preferred by aficionados for its incredible aromas and flavors. -Enjoy what you drink, and the people you are with.

Dr. Jekyll’s was conceived in the heart of an old constable station turned brewery in Brattleboro, Vermont, by three longtime friends, united by their love of great beer and active, healthy lifestyles: Tom Costa, an avid home brewer; his high school friend Jimmy T, a scientist and all natural bodybuilder; and Ray McNeill, an award-winning master brewer. After Ray suffered a serious health setback, these friends were inspired to craft beers that not only tasted great, but had something special about them, something with a greater purpose – and so was born, Dr. Jekyll’s…To be shared with the world.

Why is Tequila Partida so unique? Because it’s a meeting of the old and the new.
Tequila Partida is the product of an outstanding marriage between traditional Tequila making and cutting edge technology. And it’s this extraordinary combination that gives each and every sip of Tequila Partida something special, the pure natural essence of blue agave.
Our blue agave is like no other. It’s cultivated for 7-10 years until the piñas are perfectly ripened with concentrated sugars, harvested by hand and then slowly baked in state-of-the-art stainless steel autoclaves. The reason: To preserve the freshness of each sacred agave.

In the early 1920’s Emilio and Agripina Maldonado farmed land north of Oaxaca where they raised their ten children and served as leaders in the local town of Santa Maria Tinu. As part of Emilio’s work, he dabbled in mezcal when he could grow agave on his land.
Today, Claudia Favila, Emelio’s granddaughter, is owner of this great land of 150 acres with her husband Rudy Favila. Rudy and Claudia have now since built Rancho Buenaventura on this land and have thousands of agave plants in the ground.
As part of this journey, Rudy and Claudia have created Premium Mezcales LLC, a wholesaler and importer of certified Mezcal from the State of Oaxaca, Mexico.
Premium Mezcales has created a consortium of Mezcal producers called the MEZCALEROS CERTIFICATED FROM OAXACA S.A. DE C.V that Premium Mezcales pulls from to import product into the US and World Markets.
Premium Mezcales prides itself on importing the most authentic and unique mezcal that rivals traditional tequila.

Quigley Fine Wines, and our ‘Vineyard to Table’ philosophy…
The movement is rooting itself in the dining rooms of Americans around the country. People want to know the story behind what they are consuming – where it comes from, how it was grown and how it impacts their health and the environment. The spotlight, for the moment, is on food quality. But once you start paying attention to what is on your plate, you then can’t help but wonder what is in your glass…
This is why it is our mission to source only high quality wines from small, family owned and operated wineries. We focus on wines made in limited production and which are sustainably produced. The majority of the vineyards we work with practice organic or biodynamic viticulture.
What makes us unique, aside from our wines, is that we do not work with distributors, wholesalers, retailers, or anyone else who can stand in the way of the easy flow of wine from vineyard to table. Far too often the stories, tradition and nuances of a wine are lost in transit and forgotten when a wine hits the shelf – a label and a price tag is all that is left… We are the exclusive importers of these wines to the United States and we bring them them directly to your table – complete with the full story of how the wine was made, how the grapes were raised and the family and winemakers behind each bottle.
We offer our wines exclusively to members of our wine club, friends and family, and to a few select fine-dining establishments.
Brendan and Chrissy are passionate oenophiles with a combined 25 years in the wine industry. We are supported by, and surrounded with great friends and family who share in our wine obsession.
We select, import, sell and ship the wine ourselves with the utmost integrity. All of our wines have been swirled, sniffed, sipped, and selected by the discerning palate of Brendan Quigley. He is the man behind the name, the name behind the palate, and the palate behind every bottle of wine we offer.
Our portfolio is continuously growing, and we have plans to branch out into even more wine regions in the upcoming years. For the time being, we offer an array of wonderfully delicious wines that are some of the greatest we have ever tasted. We invite you into our club, and are sure you will be happy with every bottle of wine you receive from us.
