Dos Lunas Spirits LLC, a premium tequila company based in El Paso, Texas, announced today that Dos Lunas Tequila has been awarded Platinum Medals, "Best of Show" in two out of three tequila categories at what's known as the world's largest competition in the beverage industry, the World Beverage Competition. Dos Lunas Anejo was awarded a Platinum Medal, "Best of Show" in the category of Aged / Extra Aged / Reposado / Anejo tequilas, with judges noting, "This dark amber elixir is seductive and serious." Dos Lunas Silver was awarded Platinum, "Best of Show," in the category of Silver / Blanco tequilas, with judges comments, "Smooth, crisp, easy on the pallet." Dos Lunas does not produce a flavor infused tequila, therefore, was not an entrant in the third tequila category.
Founder and CEO Richard C. Poe II made the announcement stating, "I am proud of Dos Lunas Tequila, it is undoubtedly the smoothest tequila on the market today." Patience, a strong commitment to purity and clean practice has made Dos Lunas the finest and smoothest tequila on the market. Poe goes on to say, "Our goal at Dos Lunas has always been to produce the best tequila in the world." "It is quite an accomplishment to be selected as the "World's Best" in The World's Largest Beverage Competition™," stated World Beverage Competition personnel.

About The World Beverage Competition
The World's Largest Beverage Competition: Beverages from around the world participate in The World Beverage Competition for many reasons. Integrity, prestige, honor and success are words best used to describe the effect that Beverage Brands enjoy after receiving an award from this time-honored competition. The World Beverage Competition was founded on the premise that beverage products should be judged neither by the strength of their marketing, nor the budget of their sales force; but rather on the quality and innovation of the product itself. The tradition continues as we have recently expanded the number of beverage categories to cover the full spectrum of products available in the world today.
