Wednesday September 17th 1986. The day that Ron White and Alex Reymundo met in the world of comedy. Two Texans that started a friendship that would go beyond standup and into the world of Tequila. In fact, as far as I can tell from hanging out with these guys, the only thing that has changed is Ron’s signature scotch has been replaced with that tequila. Otherwise, they are about fun and the endless party.
And what better spirit to celebrate that than tequila. Ron and Alex tell the story of how they stumbled upon a small family distillery down in Jalisco and seven years ago formed a partnership that brought that tequila to drinkers in the United States. Their tequila Number Juan is, as they put it: water, agave, and love.
This was an absolute blast of an episode, and why wouldn’t it be, considering we got to drink the Blanco, Reposado, and Extra Anejo with one of the Latin Kings of Comedy and Mr. Tater Salad himself. We got to hear stories of their very first drinks, their old comedy road trips, and behind the scenes blunders and triumphs of building their brand Number Juan to where they are today. Ron lit up his first Davidoff Winston Churchill cigar on the video version of the podcast, so what a way to kick off our very first episode recorded start to finish on the cameras which you can find on YouTube here:
