he Don Julio 70 has been in the works for a while and was launched with two purposes. The first was to celebrate Don Julio Gonzalez’s (the man behind Don Julio) 70th anniversary as a distiller.

The brand, launched in July, by the founder of MarquisJet, is a labor of love. Not a product of Entourage, the HBO series, where Avión has been featured this season. The folks at Avión met an Entourage producer and the rest is history. It was cool to see Mark Cuban … Read more

Had a huge shot of this the other night. Maybe it was lack of salt & lime, but I didn’t think that Cabo Wabo measured up to other premium tequilas. Sammy must be hoping that being the “Red” Rocker can add $10 bucks a bottle, but for my money I’d rather drink Patrón!
