the man behind the bottle

This is my father—Don José PIlar Contreras Marquez and me—Juan Carlos Contreras, at Rancho La Cebolleta in San José de Gracia. Here is where our story begins. In a couple of years, my father will harvest this agave. From there, our distillers—Leopoldo, Gabriel and Alejandro will craft it into a wonderful spirit. We are a small brand—completely family-owned and operated. And at the heart of it is my father—Don Pilar. This tequila bears his name and is a result of the hard work and spirit that he, his family and friends put into it.

Repost from @tequilarankings :

“ 🥇- Don Pilar Extra Añejo⁣
Deep and rich aromas of caramel, cinnamon, cloves, brown sugar, and sweet agave minerality. Across the palate are notes of light caramel, butterscotch, and pecan pie. Carries through with some alcohol heat into a lingering and complex finish of butterscotch, agave, and pecan pie. ⁣

A top ten extra añejo.⁣

TMM Score: 91/100”
