Juan-Domingo “Dobel” Beckmann, the sixth-generation leader of the world’s most prominent tequila-producing family that owns José Cuervo, released an eponymous tequila that truly is “especial.”
Working with his family’s distilling tequila masters (Maestros), Beckmann developed this new brand and brought Maestro Dobel Diamond Tequila to market as a completely separate business entity.
Maestro Dobel is a hand-crafted tequila made from 100 percent blue agave that grows in the volcanic lowlands of the Jalisco region near the coast. The agaves used are eight to ten years old, which is when these plants are at their prime. After double distillation and filtration, tequilas of three different ages are hand-blended together: reposado (aged 15 months), anejo (aged 24 months), and extra-anejo (aged 36 months). The result is a balanced combination of limestone minerality and citrus flavors with a delicate, sweet finish. Each bottle of the eighty-proof liquor is filled and labeled by hand, individually numbered, and marked with the name of the ranch from where the agave was harvested.
