Long-time industry veteran Carlos Monsalve, founder and owner of Grand Mayan Tequila, has more than 20 years working in nearly every facet of the tequila business. During his travels around the world, he witnessed the demand for 100% Agave tequilas grow globally.
Prior to founding Grand Mayan, Carlos also spent years working as a consultant to launch major international tequila brands and teaching courses to individuals looking to better understand the business of tequila brand creation, manufacturing and exportation.
Carlos dedicates his life to Grand Mayan Tequila, where he and his family are involved in 100% of the process. With his son Carlos Jr., he takes a hands-on approach with each aspect of the production process, from the soil testing and agave sourcing to tasting of each batch of tequila before it is carefully bottled. He has gained international recognition for his drive and passion for premium tequila, and is honored to be working with his son, Carlos Jr., to carry on the family tradition.
Our Hand-Painted Bottles
Each unique ceramic decanter is hand crafted, individually numbered & painted by local Mexican artists in Mexico City, making each bottle a piece of artwork, but it’s what’s inside that is truly a masterpiece.
Our Production Facility
Grand Mayan Tequila is produced at NOM 1459, which has been family-owned and operated since 1942. The heritage and tradition that lives on at this distillery is directly reflected in the quality of Grand Mayan Tequila.
