Gildardo Partida

Founder of Adictivo Tequila

​Much more than a new tequila maker, maestro tequilero (a certification obtained from the western state of Jalisco, Mexico, bestowed upon someone who has completed an approved seminar on tequila) Gildardo Partida is tequila royalty.

The grandson and son of tequileros, his passion for tequila runs through his veins as does his pride in his roots and in the legacy received from his family, which has been dedicated for more than 100 years to the art of making tequila. As Gildardo loves to say, “If I passed and were reborn today, a master tequila distiller I would stay”. ​
