Trinchero Family Estates (TFE) has announced the addition of Tres Agaves Tequilas and cocktail mixes to its portfolio. Tres Agaves is dedicated to offering world class Tequilas and mixes including Blanco, Reposado and Añejo Tequilas; the original cocktail-ready agave nectar; the only USDA certified organic Margarita mix; and the first Bloody Maria mix, created specifically for Tequila.
Tres Agaves was founded in 2005 when restaurateurs Eric Rubin and Barry Augus created Tres Agaves Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Lounge and grew it into the #1 seller of premium Tequila in the U.S. by perfecting its Uno-Dos-TRES Margarita recipe, consisting of agave nectar, fresh lime juice and 100% agave Tequila. In 2008 Rubin and Augus transitioned out of the restaurant business to introduce Tres Agaves’ own line of Tequilas and mixers.
“Tres Agaves is a natural fit for Trinchero Family Estates as we continue to expand our wine and spirits portfolio. One of the reasons our industry continues to grow is the diversity of products we offer to consumers. This will provide a one stop solution for America’s best selling cocktail – the Margarita,” commented Bob Torkelson, President and COO of TFE.
Tres Agaves Tequila has a unique Jalisco, Mexico; lowlands taste profile made from 100% Blue Weber agaves matured an average of 9 years. It is produced and estate-bottled by one of Mexico’s most respected Tequila families at their boutique distillery, El Llano, which began production in 1900 and still uses volcanic spring-water from the nearby Tequila Volcano. The Master Distiller is the town’s former mayor and a fifth generation artisan who specializes in small batch, handcrafted Tequila.
Tres Agaves co-founder Barry Augus noted, “Tres Agaves partnered with one of the last independent, family-owned distilleries in Jalisco, Mexico in order to produce one of the world’s finest Tequilas. We are very excited to now become part of Trinchero Family Estates – also a family-owned and operated company. With their extensive resources and distribution, we are confident that Trinchero Family Estates will allow Tres Agaves to deliver the absolute best Margarita in the world to even more consumers.”
The following products are now available with limited distribution throughout the US:
