La Perseverancia distillery, where Sauza was first created, was founded by Don Cenobio Sauza in 1873.
Sauza was the first distiller to call his distilled spirit Tequila (instead of Mezcal), and was also the first to begin exporting his product to the United States.
Sauza tequilas are created using a particular method, in which the juices of the agave plant are extracted and steamed before distillation.
Sauza 901, a premium triple-distilled edition, is the result of a collaboration with none other than Justin Timberlake.
