About Dulce Vida Spirits:
Dulce Vida, translated as “sweet life” in Spanish, uses only 100% organic agave from the Pacific coastal highlands of Mexico. Because of its west-facing exposure to the sun and the unique characteristics of the coastal air and soil, this area is well known for producing larger, fruitier agave, ideal for premium tequila.
Dulce Vida’s products are 100° Proof, to capture the purest form of tequila – Navy Strength with minimal dilution. The result is a decidedly flavorful and authentic tequila.
Dulce Vida’s tequilas are distilled under the supervision of founder and master distiller Carlos Jurado. Dulce Vida has established relationships with local organic 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, 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.
