Sipping Tequila one warm summer day in 2009, Frank Mendez of Dixon and his cousin Jesus Venegas were having a heart-to-heart conversation about the desire of Aficionados to support the craftsmanship that goes into the finest Tequilas. At the time, there were many mass-produced brands on the market. Agave growers had an over-abundance of ripe plants, and opportunistic large producers were buying all they could at a low price. Frank and Jesus were concerned that the wrong people were getting into the business of Tequila for the wrong reasons- mainly profit – and both the purity of the spirit and the honor of the tradition were suffering.
Tequila and long conversations often seem to lead to the evolution of dreams. The two men felt passionately that Tequila should be created with craftsmanship and heart, and there in the heat of the afternoon, they made the decision to create their own brand.
Collaborating with the Feliciano Vivanco family, they began making a traditionally crafted, small-batch Tequila. Gran Dovejo is made exclusively from Agave grown in the Jalisco highlands on the Vivanco family property – an area known for producing large, sugar-laden piñas. Under the supervision of renowned Master Distiller Sergio Cruz, each of the expressions is exquisitely crafted.
Ten years later, Gran Dovejo has received multiple Gold Medals and is considered by Aficionados to be one of the finest Tequila available.
