Hacienda del Refugio

Leopoldo G. Oredain Oredain produced a 10c note.

The Hacienda del Refugio was acquired by the Orendain family in 1866. With its extensive agave plantations the family began to develop modern stills to produce high quality mezcal for exports to the United States and El Salvador. By 1884 the hacienda was renowned in Jalisco, producing 150,000 litres per year.

Leopoldo G. Orendain Orendain and his wife Genoveva Gutiérrez Rioseco had nine children, the first of whom was Leopoldo I. Odendain, born on 21 January 1898. He became a businessman, though he was also interested in history and social science, and in 1944 was appointed manager of the Banco Industrial de Jalisco, a post he held until his death on 4 May 1972.

Hacienda de San Juan de los Arcos

At the end of the 19th century the hacienda de Cuisillos passed from Simón del Llano to one of his daughters, Josefa Llano Capetillo, and, with her marriage in 1867 to Manuel Górtazar Llano, became the property of the Gortázar del Llano family, who split it into two, Cuisillos and San Juan de los Arcos.

The latter was owned by Manuel Górtazar y Llano. It was the first to be recorded as producing cartones during the Revolution. In the beginning these were for measures of maize, but later were for units of currency.

The first issue was modelo 4502, produced in November 1913.
