Flash forward to 2010, some 22 years later. El Tesoro, joint project between Mr Bob Denton and Don Felipe, is sold. Dale proposes to repeat history, this time with Don Felipe’s son, Carlos and himself. Dale has already registered a brand name, “ VillaLobos”. When pressed, Dale reluctantly admits that he was inspired during his very first trip to Mexico in 1969, when at the age of just 18, he met a beautiful Tapatía, Señorita Lupita Villalobos, one night in Guadalajara. The rest is history, but he honoured that memory by dedicating the best tequila that could possibly be made, to Lupita !
Carlos and Dale -both sons of fathers, grandfathers & even great grandfathers who spent their lives in the spirits business and learned almost all from them- unite their families to create this very unique, soft, gentle tequila.
