Maestro Dobel Diamante. Featured Tequila of the Month.


Juan Dobel , a man who has traveled the seven continents  and come to know the best of the best in the world, had one passion: To craft the first-ever  diamond t equila.
With a vault of the rarest tequilas at his disposal and a seventh generation  distilling  lineage to boast, Juan set out to create the most exquisite tequila in the world to be sipped by kings, sultans and businessme n alike. 
He proved victorious  with Dobel. A blend of Reposado, Anejo and Extra Anejo tequilas which have been gently filtered give the tequila an incredible  Diamond Clarity and crispness.  
This purity combined with the complexity  derived from the aged tequilas makes Reserva del Maestro Dobel a completely  unique Tequila. The tequila is hand crafted in small batches and aged in new oak casks from Southen Europe before getting bottled, labeled by hand and individual ly numbered. The agave is grown for eight to ten years and then hand selected by Jimadores at one of the family's best quality producing ranches as you can read on every bottle. 

Juan Dobel, a visionary artist, skilled craftsman,  and creator of the world’s most exquisite tequila.

Featured Tequila of the Month, 1800 TEQUILA


Named for the first year tequila was produced, 1800® Tequila doesn’t rely on smoke and mirrors – it embraces the authentic roots and heritage that have contributed so greatly to the smooth, rich taste it has become synonymous with.

It’s not what you say, IT’S WHAT YOU DO

That’s why the brand continues to employ its original distillation process, using authentic masonry kilns and copper pot stills.

The age-old traditional formula is crafted with Weber Blue Agave plants grown in the mineral-rich volcanic soil of Jalisco, Mexico, and aged for eight to twelve years before they’re handpicked.

The bottles that end up on the shelves contain the same quality tequila as every bottle that has left the distillery for centuries.
