Response to the interview series with Master Distiller Germán González has been wonderful.
Rightly so, for a man who is a living part of tequila history and continues to make history today with T1 Tequila Uno and Tears of Llorona.
Here are some of your questions answered:
Q: Does Germán always blend agaves from Tamaulipas and Atotonilco because originally he didn’t have enough from Atotonilco?
A: As we stated in Tequila From the Heart, Germán blended
agaves from Atotonilco with those from his family ranchos in Tamaulipas only during Chinaco’s resurgence and for his duration with that brand.
T1 Tequila Uno and Tears of Llorona use only agave from the highlands in Atotonilco.
Q: Do all his expressions start as Ultra Fino except Selecto?
softer on the palate.
