The latest from Maestro Dobel Tequila is their limited-edition Trajineras Edition.
This is the second annual release of hand-painted Extra Añejo bottles, meant to honor Mexican craftsmen and techniques, in both art and in tequila.
Atelier Extra Añejo rests more than three years in both new American and European oak barrels before blending.
On the nose is a combination of sweet scents like agave, chocolate, walnut, prune, dried fruit, butter, pineapple, apple, cinnamon, almonds and light tones of toasted wood, the distillery reports. The palate brings a warm taste of wood, as well as agave and fruit.
Bottles are painted using the technique as traditional “alebrijes” — the small, wood or cardboard figurines depicting fantastical creatures, originally from the state of Oaxaca, Mexico.
“Maestro Dobel Atelier: Trajineras Edition is truly a work of art, both inside and out,” says Juan Domingo Beckmann, Founder. “Joining Dobel 50 Silver Oak, Dobel 50 1967 and our growing portfolio of aged tequilas, Dobel continues to push the ultra-premium tequila category forward year after year by innovating and creating new award-winning and special tequilas.”
The Atelier collection launched in the U.S. with the Charreria Edition last year. This year’s iteration features a series of five different hand-painted Extra Añejo bottles inspired by the boats from Xochimilco, Mexico City.
Maestro Dobel Atelier: Trajineras Edition has a suggested retail price of $250 per 750-ml. bottle. It is available at ReserveBar and in limited quantities nationwide.
