David Grapshi

Few Americans know more about the tequila industry than David Grapshi. For nearly a quarter of a century, David has helped spearhead the category’s phenomenal growth in the United States— first as the national sales manager for Herradura and El Jimador, then as the tequila national sales manager with The Sazerac Company and Gemini Spirits and Wine. David is considered one of the best palates in the tequila industry and is respected for his insider knowledge of the science and art of producing premium tequila. David’s work with the production, distribution, and importation of Mexico’s oldest and finest labels led to him being named Ambassador to the CNIT, Mexican tequila council, one of the highest honors in the industry.
