HOUSTON — Hot Glen Road, LLC announces partnership with Velour Imports for the launch of Get Hot Tequila the world’s first, and best, premium 100% agave, habanero-infused tequila reposado into the richest Caribbean islands.
“We are very happy Velour Imports will be taking the heat to the Caribbean and beyond,” said John Vasicek, Hot Glen Road Owner and Founder. “Get Hot Tequila is a perfect vacation drink. It is new and exciting and will just add to the special vacation memories.”
Get Hot Tequila ($34.95, 750-ml) is a handmade premium double-distilled tequila from the highlands of eastern Mexico. Only after properly resting in Canadian Oak barrels for six months is the 40 percent alcohol-by-volume reposado infused with heat from habañero peppers. “We wanted to get certain flavor we knew consumers would like,” said Vasicek. Get Hot relies on vertical relationship with a family-owned distillery to distill and barrel its 100% puro reposado, leveraging the distinct floral notes associated with the Los Altos region. This fresh, new and award-winning habanero-infused tequila only officially launched in 2017, already tremendously success, Get Hot Tequila was awarded two medals for product quality and was named Tastings.com top-rated infused tequila of all time by the San Diego International Spirits Competition & Beverage Tasting Institute.
Connected through Instagram, Get Hot Tequila and Velour Imports signed agreement papers in June after three short months of discussion. Discussing brand goals of building an international following, company heads spoke by email and phone in March and have yet to meet in person.
“We are excited to work with a brand and founder who believes the most rewarding work is work you’re passionate about,” said President and Chief Operating Officer Brooke Sinclair, Velour Imports. “It’s a compelling opportunity for Velour Imports because Get Hot Tequila is one of the hottest trends in tequila – No lime, No salt needed, because habanero and tequila are simply put perfectly paired flavor profiles. We’re excited to help them take the brand further.”
