Don Pilar is quickly becoming one of my favorite lines of tequila. It may not be well known or a large company, but the thought and craftsmanship in which they put into their tequilas is evident.
Juan Contreras is the son of Don Pilar, the guy whose name is on the bottle. He's also the brand ambassador and marketing director. I met him at Zazil for some tequila.
