Join Lippy in welcoming tequila legend and Master Distiller of t1 Tequila Uno, German Gonzalez! German and his family were the creators of Chinaco, one of the very first premium tequilas imported into the U.S. in the early 80’s. Fast forward some 30 years and we find German striking out on his own with a new brand created specifically for the American palate. Tequila Uno features a mass of balanced agave interest with “no bite”.
Saddle up your yapping dog and take a trip with Th’ Lip down to the wilds of the Chihuahuan desert in Northern Mexico!

In this soggy episode, Th’ Lip attempts to rank (and even identify!) 6 different anejos and extra-anejos from the same distillery (NOM 1472). It’s’ a BLIND TASTING and your TEQUILA WHISPERER is looking to see if these 6 different brands are simply the same juice in different bottles.
