I am honored to announce that a brand in which I hold a distinct ownership interest is recognized in the 50 Best Spirits list of 2023.

Vinepair comes up with a list each year of the best spirits across all different categories. Thousands of bottles are tasted and only the elite few make the cut.

El Nacimiento’s Reposado was one of only six tequilas to make the list and the only Reposado to satisfy the elite standard. Of the six tequilas, El Nacimiento also maintains the best price point.

Joining El Nacimiento on the elite list were products from all different categories and iconic brands such as Tanqueray, Jack Daniels, Elijah Craig, Maker’s Mark and Bombay Sapphire.

Here is an excerpt from our recognition:

“Tequila regulations dictate that reposados can spend up to 364 days in oak, and all too often the aging vessel dominates the final spirit. Not here, though. El Nacimiento’s expression finds a sweet middle ground, with 6 months spent in American oak, and a profile that sings herbaceous, savory agave with just a kiss of sweetness.”

In the past I have been approached by different brands to be associated with them. However, I only decided to associate with the highest caliber of product, El Nacimiento represents everything I think is ideal in a brand. It is produced by a family farm in Mexico, has a nostalgic tradition and it is meticulously crafted with great care.

I like to congratulate my partners Billy, Hector, and Lupe.

El Nacimiento has reached an elite level and it is time to develop the market and find the right partners for growing the brand!  We owe it to the consumers to provide access to this incredible brand!
