  • Agave spirits are grown in Mexico.
  • Most Agave is Mezcal.
  • Reynolds grows his agave in the State of Colima, by a volcano that is the 26th most active in the world.
  • Reynolds co-owns Dos Volcanes Tequila with Ted Rose, who is the executive director of Project Amigo.
  • Project Amigo removes the financial barriers of education through scholarships for locals in Colima.
  • Colima is very poor and has many obstacles for education for the kids.
  • Project Amigo offers scholarships to the most promising kids.
  • Rose asked Reynolds if he would like to start making a tequila to help raise funds for the non-profit, and he said yes.
  • It takes eight years to grow agave.
  • Rose and Reynolds didn’t realize this and did not start growing new agave every year.
  • Now they do.
  • When they are fully grown, the agave is cut to the core with a sharp blade.
  • The core of the plant is where the agave is.
  • After, the agave is shredded and juiced, then added to a tank to be fermented with yeast.
  • Dos Volcanes Tequila ferments in 10,000-gallon tanks which produces 60 tons.
  • After, the agave is filtered and tasted.
  • Then the tequila is taken to Guadalajara to be tested at TEQUILA.
  • After, then the label design begins, which took Rose and Reynolds seven months.
  • After, they had to get it approved.
  • Next comes bottling the tequila.
  • Dos Volcanes Tequila has a very extensive label with a bunch of facts not many tequila bottles have.
  • After they bottled the tequila, the two had to find boxes to fit the strange size of the bottle.
  • Lastly, Reynolds talked about various success stories of Project Amigo such as some becoming doctors or accountants.
