THE MOZART METHOD OF FERMENTATION
Our master distillers insist on serenading the agave must with Baroque music during the 200 hours of fermentation to coax the conversion from sugar-to-alcohol.
AROMATIC PROFILE & CLEAN FINISH
Don Pilar’s Blanco has a wonderfully fragrant profile and a refreshingly clean finish.
A clean, crystalline liquid.
The nose offers fresh notes of lime, pineapple and baked agave.
The palate is crisp and lightly sweet, rounding out smoothly.
It finishes cleanly with a refreshing citrus zest.
The Blanco, being a "young" tequila, fittingly features a portrait of Don Pilar as a young man—full of vigor, hope and energy.
EL CORRIDO DEL BLANCO
The Blanco giftbox is embazoned with a ballad that is dedicated to Don Pilar’s youth and adventures as a Bracero migrant worker. Watch Los Meños sing a corrido in honor of Don Pilar’s Blanco.
