"Maestro Dobel Tequila, creator of the world's first Cristalino, continues to innovate in the tequila category, announcing today the U.S. release of Dobel 50 Silver Oak edition. Created in partnership with renowned Northern California winery Silver Oak, this luxury Extra Añejo tequila is finished in Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon wine barrels and celebrates the winery's monumental 50th anniversary.
Maestro Dobel 50 is a collection of smooth and complex ultra-premium tequilas, created to honor founder Juan Dobel's 50th birthday along with other half-century milestones. Handcrafted in the lowlands of Jalisco, using 100% Blue Weber Agaves expertly grown and sourced from a single-family estate, Dobel 50 Silver Oak edition is an extra-aged tequila matured in American oak and then finished in Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon wine barrels, resulting in an exceptional and highly limited release.
Founded on 11 generations of tequila legacy, Maestro Dobel continues to innovate in the tequila category as the creator of the world's first Cristalino. Silver Oak is family-owned and the world's first winery to own and operate an American oak barrel cooperage. The creation of Dobel 50 Silver Oak edition further showcases the myriad of finishes a great tequila can have when made with mastery.
"We are thrilled to announce this release in collaboration with Silver Oak, a Northern California icon for whom we have great respect and shared values of familial heritage, tradition and product innovation," says Juan Dobel, founder of Maestro Dobel Tequila. "Dobel 50 Silver Oak edition celebrates a shared 50-year milestone and captures the flavor profile of one of the best wineries we know while enhancing the smooth agave notes of our most exquisite tequila," he adds.
The influence of the Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon barrel finish used to create Dobel 50 Silver Oak edition is palpable, with notes of citrus and dried fruits brightening and enhancing the elegance and smoothness of the liquid. The end result is a translucent appearance with an intensely bright amber color accented by gold and bright orange sparkles. The complexity of aromas resulting from the carefully selected aging barrels are complemented by the subtle notes of red fruit characters of Silver Oak wine, providing an abundance of flavor enhancing the smoothness of the overall profile.
"The connection between wine and tequila is not a usual one, but American oak makes for a natural vessel to explore how these two amazing liquids can influence each other," says David R. Duncan, Silver Oak CEO. "With their focus on generational farming, craftsmanship and innovation, Maestro Dobel made for an ideal 50th anniversary collaboration," he adds."
