Maestro Dobel, 11th generation master tequila makers teamed up with Executive Chef Sean Christensen at the beginning of 2019 to bring Maui Country Club its very own premium tequila.
The process started with Maestro Dobel’s Diamante Tequila as the base spirit. Diamante is the world’s first clear multi-aged tequila, a rule defying blend of extra-Anejo and Reposado tequila that has been double filtered to produce a crystal-clear liquid renowned for its character and smoothness.
Next, Chef and his team sat down with the Maestro and samples of the Diamante that had been finished in 21 different Oak barrels. These included American, French, and Hungarian Oak barrels heavily toasted to no toast all. At the end the winner was the un-toasted Hungarian Oak barrel. With its approachable sweet notes and hints of vanilla on the finish it is the prefect tequila for sipping neat or on the rocks, the team also felt it would shine in the clubs very popular Nani Rita.
In April after the selection was made, Maestro Dobel filled a beautiful Hungarian Oak Barrel with the Diamante where it spent the last 6 months in Jalisco, Mexico. Today it has finally arrived home here at the Maui Country Club for your enjoyment.
Top-shelf Margarita also known as the “Nani Rita” $11 (or only $8 on Cantina Night)
Chef suggests it neat or on the rocks $8 for a single, or only $10 for a Double Dobel
