901 Silver to Launch in 20 New States

St. Louis, MO (February 24, 2010) — Continuing its rapid expansion throughout the United States, 901 Silver Tequila announced today that it will add 20 additional states to its distribution channel. Launched less than one year ago initially in California, Colorado, Missouri, Nevada, New York, Tennessee, and Wisconsin, the ultra-premium, triple-distilled tequila brand is now available in Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio and Texas. 901 Silver will soon be available in Alabama, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington and Washington, DC.

In order to maintain the highest level of quality, 901 Silver is produced using only 100% Blue Weber Agave. Produced by Tequilera Newton, in the heart of Jalisco, Mexico, 901 Silver is triple distilled using the most innovative distillation methods available for fine tequila. Perfected with over three generations of craftsmanship and more than 60 years of experience, 901 Silver is hand crafted in small batches allowing greater quality control of the tequila. Delivering a fruity nose and finishing with exceptional smoothness and subtle hints of agave, 901 Silver provides the perfect balance.

‘€œ901 Silver has been extremely well-received by our distributors, key accounts, leading cocktail experts and most importantly, consumers in our initial launch States,’€ said Kevin Ruder, President of 901 Silver Tequila. ‘€œWe are very excited about introducing the brand to both trade and consumers in these new markets.’€
