Born and raised in Southern California with an eye for business, Alan started several tech companies and invested in many others. Charity, business groups and a family with kids could fill his whole bio. But he’s here to talk Tequila.
Always into fitness, Alan was looking for a spirit he could drink that would be the best for him in his quest for good health. About a decade ago when he was still drinking vodka sodas, he was given his first bottle of Tequila by his good friend Rick and told of its mystical properties. It didn’t take long before Alan and Tequila became synonymous in most circles of conversation. So the stage was set when a few years later on his 43rd birthday, thirty-four of his friends put their heads together and helped launch a passion. They each showed up to the party with a bottle of Tequila, and the collection began. Over the years, thirty-four turned into one hundred, then two and now somewhere north of two hundred forty. Tastings at the Ezeir residence have become a normal occurrence and business meetings often turn into talks surrounding the Tequila distillation process. Alan continues to be pulled by this wonderful plant that takes seven to twelve years to grow and then bake, shread, ferment, distill, barrel and drink. While always connected to the business sector, his focus on Tequila tours in Mexico and teachings during tastings have been much more on his mind than the ones and zeros in his previous tech life.
Life is to be lived. Drive your passion until you can’t move and you will never work a day in your life. They say Tequila is the only alcohol that is a stimulant. Many believe this isn’t possible, but Alan’s life has been on a high ever since that first kiss with Tequila.
