Austin-based brand launches new 80-proof line and 70-proof infused tequilas, Lime and Grapefruit
AUSTIN, Texas (Aug 16, 2016) — Dulce Vida Tequilas, recently acquired by newly formed alcohol beverage investor, Milestone Brands LLC, announces the introduction of 70-proof Dulce Vida Lime Tequila and Dulce Vida Grapefruit Tequila. Delivering outstanding quality for the price, Dulce Vida also adds a new 80-proof portfolio (Blanco, Reposado and Añejo) to its existing lineup of 100 percent blue agave, organic, Los Altos tequila.
Like all Dulce Vida Spirits, Dulce Vida Lime Tequila and Dulce Vida Grapefruit Tequila hail from the Los Altos region of Jalisco, Mexico and are handcrafted from 100 percent blue agave. Infused with real fruit and all-natural flavors, Dulce Vida Lime Tequila and Grapefruit Tequila are low-carb, low-calorie and simplify cocktail mixology for an easy and perfect Margarita or Paloma. They are best enjoyed with simple mixers, like sparkling water, enjoyed on the rocks or as a chilled shot.
“Dulce Vida has seen amazing growth since our acquisition, and we’re thrilled with the launch of these naturally infused flavors,” said Eric Dopkins, Founder and CEO of Milestone Brands LLC. “These cocktail ready, category disruptors continue our standards in providing healthier cocktail solutions and handcrafted products.”
In addition to its existing most award-winning 100-proof Dulce Vida Tequilas, the new Dulce Vida 80-proof variants and 70-proof flavors create an impressive tequila portfolio. Bottled immediately after distillation, Blanco is the most vibrant with notes of citrus with a sweet agave finish. The most versatile of the three, Dulce Vida Reposado is aged from 9 to 11 months in American Oak whisky barrels, with refreshing aromas of fruit and caramel and a mild, sweet finish. Full-bodied and best experienced as a sipping tequila, Dulce Vida Añejo features aromas of vanilla and cinnamon and is aged up to 24 months in select American Oak whisky barrels.
Dulce Vida was formed in 2009 in Austin, TX and is now sold in 17 states. To learn more about Dulce Vida Spirits, visit http://dulcevidaspirits.com/.
