Proof66 Notes

Donkey Piss Reposado tequila is rested for between 2 and 11 months in oak prior to bottling. This gives the normally clear tequila a light golden haze and vanilla/caramel notes typical of oak.

At Proof66, we had a chance to explore the reposado personally finding it particularly appealing for cocktails in macho settings. Our recommended best use: Mexican Coffee: 5oz coffee; 1.5oz Donkey Piss; 0.5oz coffee liqueur.

The name itself is said to come from the donkey of one Juan Jose Garcia Gomez, who on his search for buried treasure in gold bullion to buoy his tequila making came upon a place in the high mountain desert. Here, his Dolito--the name of his donkey--pissed away the dirt mounded up in a pile to reveal an ancient bottle that led to the buried treasure. The label is meant to pay respect to the fortunate urination of the propitious Dolito. The tequila itself is made at a boutique distillery with 3 generations of tequila-making experience. The Donkey Piss brand was first released in September, 2013 and assured in the press release by owner Jeff Myers that "while the name is fun, the taste is serious."

The brand is owned by Libation Nation.

First, despite any stuffy complaints we have about the name, we will stand by the notion that Donkey Piss is a highly competent tequila. While it doesn’t serve especially well as a sipping tequila, it has a distinctive flair that works quite well for a certain audience in common cocktail settings. In particular, margaritas - that most popular of all Mexican cocktails - is a particular recommendation of ours. Bachelor parties (bachelorette parties?), weekend warrior sports teams celebrations, biker rallies… these are probably all events that would serve Donkey Piss with some pride.
