About Código 1530
For generations, Codigo 1530 Tequila remained a closely-guarded secret among Los Bajos’ finest jimadores. The recipe for Código 1530 has been passed down and perfected for generations. The tequila is crafted using the time-honored customs and traditions of the Los Bajos region as well as the town of Amatitán, the birthplace of Tequila. Código 1530 is named after “Los Códigos,” the pre-colonial old world codes and customs that shaped the town of Amatitán and the Los Bajos region.
Once known as the El Tequila Privado, “the private Tequila,” the label has been introduced to the world for the very first time in 2016 by Federico “Fede” Vaughan, CEO & Co-Founder of Código 1530 and honorary custodian of its private recipe, and Co-Founder and Executive Chairman Ron Snyder, a longtime friend of Federico and seasoned business executive.
The Código 1530 range includes a Blanco, Reposado, Añejo, an Extra Añejo Tequila, and a Rosa.
Although tequila has developed a bad reputation, there’s more to the spirit than just shots on a Saturday night.
