Maestro Dobel tequila and Mexico City-based design studio Onora have announced the launch of their latest collaboration, Dobel 50 Cristalino Onora: Laca de Olinalá.
This release marks the second of three limited edition Dobel 50 Cristalino bottles with unique and handcrafted stoppers.
Maestro Dobel and Onora have enlisted the talents of master artisan Adolfo Escudero García from the village of Olinalá to handcraft this series of Dobel 50 Cristalino bottle stoppers.
These bottle stoppers use wood from Olinalá, a region known for being one of the centers of lacquer production in Mexico.
Maestro Dobel 50 is an extra añejo cristalino tequila, created by founder Juan Dobel. Unlike any expression before it, Maestro Dobel 50 rests extra añejo tequilas from family reserves in both Eastern European and American oak barrels, before marrying them together.
The final product has notes of fig, quince, date, pineapple and pumpkin, the company reports, before hints of cinnamon, vanilla and clove.
With less than 1,000 bottles available in the US, Maestro Dobel 50 Onora Laca de Olinalá is available for purchase in limited quantities at select retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $250 per 750-ml. bottle and $399 per 1-75L bottle.
