I took a tour of the plant with Don Lux, president of Luxco.
The company has been a St. Louis institution since the 1950s and first brought tequila to the area at that time. Today, Luxco’s tequilas flavor the margaritas at Chili’s, Chevy’s and Casa Gallardo. They own the Everclear brand and make spiced rum, bourbon, whiskey, schnapps and other spirits.
With headquarters downtown on Clark Street, their production facility off Kingshighway and Arsenal, a distribution facility in Hazelwood and newly purchased facilities in Cleveland and Cincinnati, Luxco continues to grow and rake in awards.
