T1 Tequila Uno Estelar.

Tasting Tequila Uno with Germán González (4)

Tequila Uno Estelar

Germán Gonzalez, distiller of T1 Tequila Uno and Tears of Llorana, explains what it takes to make T1 Estelar añejo.

Flavor Notes

Aged for almost 24 months, it is much darker and richer than T1 Tequila Uno Excepcional reposado.

The wood tones, courtesy of the used scotch whisky barrels Germán employs, shine through to compliment the fruity nose of the agave.

Chocolate and citrus dominate in a pleasant way on the tongue.

This nectar enters sweet and finishes dry at the back of the throat.  It’s like a warm scarf on a chilly day.

T1 Tequila Uno Selecto

Tequila Uno–Selecto

Germán González, distiller of T1 Tequila Uno and Tears of Llorana, shares his views on T1 Selecto, and how he balances alcohol and water to obtain the right amount of agave elements.

Selecto Flavor Notes

Hand selected maduro (mature) agave goes into this blanco at just the right ABV (alcohol by volume) to release an explosion of flavor at mid-palate and up through the nasal passages.

Again, the finish stays within the throat and back of the tongue, not in your stomach.
