Master Distiller German Gonzalez, is the great grandson of General Manuel Gonzalez, former President of Mexico between 1880 - 1884. In the late 1970s German’s father, Guillermo Gonzalez Diaz Lombardo, founder of La Gonzalena launched what would become the first ultra-premium tequila imported into the United States, Chinaco. German worked closely with his father and learned how to handcraft tequila using traditional techniques. After years serving as Chinaco’s master distiller, German left the company to launch his own brand, like his father before him. The story of T1 Tequila Uno begins where the history of tequila begins. For centuries generations of tequila masters have perfected the art of making this unique spirit. A creation of Master Distiller German Gonzalez, our tequilas have an acquired pedigree only achievable through heritage and continuity with the past. Handcrafted using these ancestral and traditional methods and from mature 100% Agave Azul grown in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, emerges a masterpiece collection of T1 Tequila Uno’s of extraordinary and exquisite caliber. All the varieties T1 Tequila Uno are made from 100% mature Agave Azul grown in the Mexican Highlands, which tend to produce plants with higher concentrations of natural sugar. ”I wanted to make a tequila using traditional methods, with mature agave and no additives,” says Master Distiller German Gonzalez, who personally inspects each agave plant before it is harvested. In the agave fields, Gonzalez looks for what he calls a brown ring that forms around the center of the plant or pina,which is an indication that the agave is mature, much the way brown spots on a banana indicate ripeness. After harvest, Gonzalez then oversees each step of the production process at the Tequilera distillery, in the heart of Tequila, Jalisco, where he slow-roasts the specially picked agave in autoclave ovens for 20 hours. But its during the distillation process that Gonzalez reveals the hand of an artist.
