Dos Lunas Tequila
Take life with a grain of salt, a slice of lime, and a shot of Tequila.
On New Year's Eve 2005, Dos Lunas' founder, Richard C. Poe II, was at a bar in Telluride, Colorado. After witnessing several patrons order tequila and visibly cringe after tasting it, he had the idea to create a more premium brand of tequila that would taste good and be more enjoyable to drink. In 2006, he visited Guadalajara, Mexico and secured a master distiller and began producing Dos Lunas.
Dos Lunas Tequila is made from 100% blue Weber agave which is grown near Zapotlanejo, Jalisco, in the tequila producing region of Mexico. All-natural fertilizer, and naturally derived yeast are utilized, while no added enzymes, synthetic anti-bacterial agents, or glycerin are used at any point during the growth, production, or bottling processes. It is also certified Kosher.
Dos Lunas Tequila is one of the few brands to avoid the use of off-site bottlers, and instead fills each bottle by hand in the same distillery where the tequila is produced. The bottles are also washed in tequila.
Silver : Dos Lunas Silver was introduced in 2006. The silver is cold-filtered, triple distilled and aged for six days in new white oak barrels.
Reposado: Dos Lunas Reposado was also introduced in 2006. The reposado is double distilled and rested for nine months in Tennessee bourbon casks, and in new American white oak barrels. At the end of the nine months, the tequilas from both casks are blended to create an always consistent smooth and mellow taste.
Aņejo: Dos Lunas Aņejo was introduced in 2008. Like Dos Lunas reposado, it is aged in both Tennessee whiskey casks and new American white oak casks, but is aged twice as long, being mixed and bottled after 18 months to create this distinctive sipping tequila.
Extra Aņejo: Dos Lunas' Extra Aņejo Grand Reserve is a special edition tequila that was made in limited quantity. 1,000 bottles were produced, out of tequila that had been aged 10 years in Spanish sherry casks.
