Lobos 1707 Joven Tequila –This blanco, unaged Tequila has a touch of Reposado in it. Because it is aged in sherry casks, it offers a more nuanced and flavorful expression than a typical Blanco. I found mine at Target, but you can also buy it at Lobos1707.
pineapple juice or champagne
Equipment and Bar Tools Needed

A Note about Lobos 1707 Joven Tequila
Lobos 1707 Tequila is crafted by Spanish and Mexican distillers. Founded by Diego Osorio, (whose family has a legacy of producing sherry for generations), this tequila is special. The name Lobos (which means wolves in Spanish) was inspired by the pack mentality of wolves.
Diego's great-grandfather would bring the family’s sherry on trips to Mexico. When the sherry was depleted, they would refill the casks with agave spirit (what we now know as tequila) and it would sit in the sherry casks for the return trip.
Upon tasting the aged tequila, he discovered it imparted an incredible flavor. Diego has brought this story to life with the creation of the Lobos brand, which launched in 2020. Since creating the brand, several notable figures have joined the team as shareholders, such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lebron James, Maverick Carter, and others.
Lobos 1707 has deeply rooted values and embraces diversity and inclusion - more than half of the team is female, with women serving in the CEO and CMO roles at the company. Lobos 1707 supports the World Central Kitchen through donations of one meal per bottle sold.
The team regularly volunteers for various local charities near the headquarters in New York City’s lower east side. Lobos 1707 gives back and donates to wolf sanctuaries such as the Wolf Conservation Center, in an effort to save these misunderstood creatures.
My Review of Lobos 1701
This tequila is smooth, balanced and crisp. You could enjoy it in a cocktail, or by itself on the rocks. It has a fresh agave flavor and it finished nicely. It is also lovely with juice or in a cocktail. I hope to try their other varieties soon.
