Austin-based brand launches new 80-proof line and 70-proof infused tequilas, Lime and Grapefruit
AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 an 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 and Dulce Vida Grapefruit hail from the Los Altos region of Jalisco in Mexico and are handcrafted from 100 percent blue agave. Infused with real fruit, Lime and Grapefruit are low-carb, low-calorie and simplify mixology for an easy Margarita or Paloma.
"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 Dulce Vida's award-winning 100-proof tequilas, the new 80-proof variants and 70-proof flavors create an impressive portfolio. Bottled immediately after distillation, Dulce Vida Blanco is the most vibrant with notes of citrus with a sweet agave finish. Aged from 9 to 11 months in American Oak whisky barrels, Reposado is the most versatile, with refreshing aromas of fruit and caramel and a mild, sweet finish. The full-bodied Añejo, aged up to 24 months in select American Oak whisky barrels, features aromas of vanilla and cinnamon.
Dulce Vida was formed in 2009 in Austin, TX and is now sold in 17 states. To learn more, visit http://dulcevidaspirits.com/.
