Some brands sort of reel you in with their history and authenticity. Here, at Drink Me, we’ve always found it especially fascinating to work with brands that emit a sense of place and a connection to the consumer.
Maestro Dobel Tequila is one of those brands. It was created by, and named for, eleventh generation Tequilero Juan Domingo Beckmann Legoretta, who comes from a historied family of tequila-makers.
Maestro Dobel Diamante is the first multi-aged, clear tequila, and founded the new Cristalino types of tequila.
Made with 100% blue agave and blended using a mixture of extra-añejo, añejo and reposado tequilas, Maestro Dobel Diamante possesses the purity of a clear spirit, with the added complexity of flavor derived from barrel-aged expressions.
The blue weber agave plants used to create Diamante grow for 8 to 10 years, and are hand selected from a small number of Dobel family-owned estates. The liquid is double distilled and aged in oak casks from Eastern Europe, for varying lengths of time. After the tequila has completed its aging process, it goes through a proprietary filtration process allowing the Tequileros to remove the color, while preserving the tequila’s complexity and smoothness. The result is an entirely cutting edge concept and a unique taste.
Maestro Dobel Diamante is housed in an embossed bottle equal part modern, equal part nostalgic, paying homage to vintage apothecary-style bottles. The estate of origin is listed on the bottle’s neck, along with the date and signatures of the Founder and Master Blender.
Maestro Dobel Diamante delivers smoothness, with a clean and crisp finish savored neat or on one large ice cube. For those looking for a mixology forward serve, its clear color lends well to many cocktails, like the signature Black Diamond Margarita: a mix of Dobel, fresh lime juice, and agave syrup, garnished with black diamond salt from Hawaii.
Dobel Tequila is bottled at 40% ABV, and available in the United States for the suggested retail price of $49.99 for 750ml.
