Maestro Dobel Tequila Launches Luxe Extra Añejo Finished in Sherry Casks
The first release in the Maestro Dobel 50 collection is an extra añejo tequila aged in American and French oak barrels with a sherry cask finish.
Maestro Dobel is launching a series of luxury extra añejo tequilas featuring different cask finishes. The debut release in the series is Maestro Dobel 50 1967, an extra añejo tequila aged in American and French oak barrels with a sherry cask finish.
The innovative booze brand–known for launching a standout cristalino tequila and the world’s first “turkey-infused tequila”–says the Maestro Dobel 50 collection of smooth, complex tequilas was created to celebrate founder Juan Dobel’s 50th birthday and the knowledge he has inherited as an 11th generation tequila maker.
Every year, a new limited and collectible edition of Maestro Dobel 50 Extra Añejo will be released, each with a different cask finish and celebrating 50th anniversary milestones. Maestro Dobel 50 1967 is crafted with Maestro Dobel’s finest tequila, aged in American and French Oak barrels and finished in sherry casks—resulting in an elegant liquid for the most sophisticated of tequila palates.
Handcrafted in the lowlands of Jalisco, Mexico, using 100% Blue Weber Agaves expertly grown and sourced from a single family-owned estate, Maestro Dobel 50 1967 is twice distilled in copper pot stills to achieve the smoothness for which Dobel tequilas are known.
The distilled tequila is then aged in both American and French oak barrels for a minimum of three years, the requirement for all extra añejo tequilas, during which the aromas and flavor characteristics develop in the tequila as a brilliant amber brown color.
Finally, the tequila is finished in sherry casks, absorbing rich flavors of
chocolate, coffee, nuts and dried fruits, resulting in a dark, extra añejo tequila with a smooth yet complex flavor.
Maestro Dobel 50 1967 is available for purchase in limited quantities at select retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $950.00.
