with you. We're very excited to have you and we have
00:54
some questions. So Carmen,
00:56
what does it take to become a master distiller?
00:59
I was born here and raised in a tequila production radio and
01:05
I used to live at the University of Guadalajara where I obtained
01:10
a degree in clinic pharmacologist.
01:14
My first job after the college was at a small distillery here
01:19
in Aranda and I feel in love with the tequila process as
01:25
simply as complicated at the same time.
01:29
And Casa Del Sol gave me the opportunity to and confidence
01:35
to work with them like a master distiller.
01:37
That's awesome. Congratulations.
01:40
And, and yes,
01:41
thank you. I wanted to ask what are some of the
01:43
ways that Casa Del Sol is giving back to the women in
01:46
the Los Altos de Jalisco region.
01:48
Well, Casa Del Sol believes in the potential of the
01:53
woman in the, in the industry.
01:56
Casa Del Sol gave us leadership positions like a master
02:01
dealer and the VVP and other positions and employing local women.
02:08
This allow to them to support their families and continue their
02:13
education will earning an income.
02:16
That's amazing. That's great.
02:18
That's a great cause.
02:19
And also what do you think people should look for in a
02:22
good tequila? What,
02:23
what distinguishes it and you can drink tequila alone is the best
02:28
tequila for you. That's true.
02:31
Yes, because sometimes you drink some tequila and you
02:36
feel alcohol, a lot of alcohol in your mouth and
02:42
it Yeah, like Mila.
02:45
Thank you so much,
02:46
Carmen. Thank you,
02:49

02:57
