About Dulce Vida Spirits:
Dulce Vida (translates as “sweet life” in Spanish) distills the only 100% organic, 100° Proof tequila made in the world. The distillery uses only organic agave from the Pacific coastal highlands of Mexico. Dulce Vida’s Reposado and Añejo are single-barrel aged, meaning they go straight from the aging barrel to the bottle. Both Reposado and Añejo are aged in Kentucky Whisky Oak Barrels – the Reposado for 11 months, and Añejo for 24 months.
Dulce Vida produces 100° proof tequilas (versus the more common 80° proof) to capture the purest example of tequila – Navy Strength with minimal dilution. Distilled under the supervision of founder and master distiller Carlos Jurado.
Dulce Vida has established relationships with local growers; securing harvest rights to agave fields and acting as a community partner playing a role in the well being of the region.
Dulce Vida Spirits is headquartered in Austin, Texas, with distilling operations near Guadalajara, Jalisco.
Currently available through Glazer’s Distributing in Texas and Oklahoma, Southern Wine & Spirits in Pennsylvania, and Prime Wine & Spirits in Georgia. Suggested Retail Price for a 750 mL bottle is $35 for the Blanco, $40 for the Reposado, and $45 for the Añejo.
