Traditionally-made Tequilas Rise to the Top of the 2017 Spirits of Mexico Competition.

The Tequila Whisperer dives into all three varieties of Gran Dovejo tequila.
Leopoldo Solis is the mastermind behind many well-respected tequilas. After our review of his most recent creation, Tequila Gran Dovejo, we were invited to meet Mr. Solis in person while he was traveling through Mexico City.
Gran Dovejo is made in the highlands of Jalisco using many of our favorite techniques: the use of very ripe single-estate agave, cooked in clay ovens, distilled in copper pots, and created in small batches. (In other words even more “clues.”)
