T1 Tequila Uno

The story of T1 Tequila Uno begins where the history of tequila begins. For centuries generations of tequila masters have perfected the art of making this unique spirit. A creation of Master Distiller Germán González, our tequilas have an acquired pedigree only achievable through heritage and continuity with the past. Handcrafted using these ancestral and traditional methods and from mature 100% Agave Azul grown in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, emerges a masterpiece collection of extraordinary and exquisite caliber: T1 Tequila Uno.
Master Distiller Germán González is the great-grandson of General Manuel González, former President of México between 1880 – 1884. In the late 1970s Germán's father, Guillermo Gonzalez Diaz Lombardo, founder of Destileria La Gonzaleña, launched what would become the first ultra-premium tequila imported into the United States, Chinaco. Germán worked closely with his father and learned how to handcraft tequila using traditional techniques. After years serving as Chinaco's master distiller, Germán left the company to launch his own brand, like his father before him.
All the varieties of T1 Tequila Uno are made from 100% mature Agave Azul grown in the Mexican Highlands, which tend to produce plants with higher concentrations of natural sugar. "I wanted to make a tequila using traditional methods, with mature agave and no additives," says Master Distiller Germán Gonzalez, who personally inspects each agave plant before it is harvested.

T1 Tequila Uno Ultra Fino Blanco is double distilled at a higher proof to obtain the refined flavors of the agave and then married with water to 80 proof to fully arrive at a delicate and fresh agave flavor.

Awards: Distiller.com 2016 – 95 points; Spirits of Mexico 2011 – Gold Medal; Spirit Journal – 2012 Top 140 Spirits (the only tequila included): “Comes off juicy and ripe in the first aromatic go-round... attractive succulence of ripe agave, light honey, pears, lemongrass and candle wax; a beautifully crafted bouquet. Entry is gently sweet, peppery, herbal and floral; midpalate crystallizes all the positive features of the bouquet and entry taste, offering a highly sophisticated core flavor that’s citrusy, plump, moderately oily and vegetal. Concludes long, waxy, spicy and piquant.” F. Paul Pacult's Spirits Journal – 2011 ***** Highest Recommendation: "Sparkling, clean appearance… A beautifully crafted Bouquet…. Delicious… BUY, BUY, BUY Before the price goes up."

T1 Tequila Uno Selecto

SKU: 177006
Case configuration: 6x750mL

For our limited release Selecto, we use more mature agaves and distill longer, at lower temperature to a lower final proof. Then we dilute very little and bottle at 43% ABV – for a robust, creamy mouthfeel and a big bold flavour profile. Strong aromas of roast agave, white pepper, ginger, and lime, with earth, honey, chamomile, and more roast agave on the palate. Big and bold – a true sipping blanco!

T1 Tequila Uno Excepcional

SKU: 790949
Case configuration: 6x750mL

After double-distilling at a higher proof to obtain the refined flavors of the agave, this 100% blue agave tequila rests in former scotch barrels for a minimum of six months for a light golden color, and contains unique aromas of spiced citrus, apple, peach and agave flavors. Best served neat, on the rocks or in your favorite mixed premium cocktail.

Awards: Distiller.com 2016 – 96 points; Wine Enthusiast 2012 – 92 points “Rested in barrels previously used to age Scotch whisky, this Tequila is complex, earthy and unlike any other. Where others are caramel-forward (the result of resting in used Bourbon barrels), this reposado is crisp, with woodsy, green flavors and subtle notes of coconut and toffee on the finish.”; Spirits of Mexico 2011 – Gold Medal; F. Paul Pacult’s Spirit Journal – 2011 Highly Recommended “Perfect Purity… Entry is supple, peppery and lightly smoked…. Flavorful and true to the agave.”

T1 Tequila Uno Estelar

SKU: 176933
Case configuration: 6x750mL

This 100% blue agave tequila, released in October 2011, rests for 20-24 months in former Scotch barrels, themselves formerly Spanish sherry casks to create a lively, beautiful bronze color, and contains unique aromas of chocolate, citrus and of course the warm smooth flavor of the wood. Intense coffee and burnt sugar dominate this Añejo. Its body recalls the sweetness of T1 Excepcional, but is tempered with more candy bar notes, dark chocolate, coconut, almonds, and a cappuccino finish. Sip it neat, with or without a fine cigar.

T1 Tequila Uno Sensacional

SKU BC: 601104
SKU AB: 776401
Case configuration: 6x750mL

T1 Sensacional was released in late 2015, rests for 3 ½ years Scotch barrels, themselves formerly Spanish sherry casks, and bottled at 42% ABV. Drinkhacker.com: “The nose kicks off with big agave and bright citrus notes – lemon and grapefruit – with a kind of smoky underpinning, giving it a hint of a mezcal character. On the palate, the tequila bursts with flavor – again, there’s far more agave than most extra-añejos offer, with the intense vegetal character you usually only see in a blanco. As this fades, the tequila offers notes of black pepper, grapefruit peel, and barrel char. This lattermost note endures on the finish, giving Sensacional a distinctly whiskeylike character to it, with wood transporting it to another world.”
