Dobel Tequila is the world’s first crystal-clear aged tequila with the complexity of aged cognacs combined
with the crispness of luxury vodkas. Dobel Tequila is a unique blend of extra-añejo, añejo and reposado
tequila blended and filtered to produce a crystal clear liquid. The tequila is produced in small batches aged
in oak casks from Southern Europe and every step of the process is done by hand. Dobel Tequila is
recognized for its superior smoothness and iconic packaging which includes a stopper and a modern twist
on a vintage apothecary-style bottle, a heavily embossed bottle whose design is inspired by the laboratory
sample bottles used by the distillery’s Maestro Tequileros (Master Distillers). Dobel Tequila is available
nationwide in fine bars, restaurants and retailers – in 200 ml, 375 ml and 750 ml bottles. The 750 ml bottle
