Don Pilar Tequila Gift SetYou will the three bottles listed belowDon Pilar Blanco Tequila 750MLDon Pilar Reposado Tequila 750MLDon Pilar Anejo Tequila 750MLDon Pilar, a former field worker turned restraunteur and entrepreneur, takes a hands-on approach to his tequila, supervising harvesting and production. A portrait of Don Pilar at his current age appears on the aejo bottles, and a young portrait appears on the new blanco.The tequila is truly a family business. Don Pilars son, Juan, is the brand ambassador for the tequila. He tells me that the agave all comes from his fathers ranches near the town of San Jose de Gracia, which Juan tells me is in the highlands [of Jalisco], 6,000 feet above sea level, in the middle of the Golden Triangle of tequila production”between the towns of Arandas, Atotonilco and Tepatitlan. Each agave used in the tequila is hand-selected. It must be 8-to-10 years old, says Juan. Young or diseased plants are not used. We also take the extra step of removing the plants bitter roots “ cogollos.Another distinguishing factor about Don Pilar is that it is fermented using the Mozart Method, a technique based upon the research of Dr. Masaru Emoto, a Japanese scientist who focuses on the healing qualities of water. Juan explains that in the Mozart Method, Baroque music, specifically Vivaldis Four Seasons, is played during the fermentation process to optimize the sugar conversion. The basic theory or rationale is that yeast, being a living organism, reacts to audio stimuli, and the fermentation process improves even more so with a highly-cultured, sophisticated work of art like the Four Seasons.'
