Santo Cuviso translates as “holy bacanora.” That’s how the Jesuit missionaries referred to it back in the summer of 1756 when the Opata Indians offered it up as a healing remedy. It didn’t take long for the Jesuits to praise the benefits of a daily dose. Legend has it that they broke their bread with it religiously, certain that each and every agave plant is a gift from God.

Santo Cuviso is 100% organic, 100% wild and 100% sinfully good = Elixir of Life

Crafted to remind you that sometimes the best way to refresh your soul is to allow your lips to kiss a little spirit every day.
