Dulce Vida Tequilas — recently acquired by the newly formed alcohol beverage investor, Milestone Brands LLC — has announced the introduction of 70-proof Dulce Vida Lime Tequila and Dulce Vida Grapefruit Tequila.
Dulce Vida has also added a new 80-proof portfolio (Blanco, Reposado and Añejo) to its existing lineup of 100 percent blue agave, organic, Los Altos tequila.
Like all Dulce Vida Spirits, Dulce Vida Lime Tequila and Dulce Vida Grapefruit Tequila hail from the Los Altos region of Jalisco, Mexico, and are handcrafted from 100 percent blue agave. Infused with real fruit and all-natural flavors, Dulce Vida Lime Tequila and Grapefruit Tequila are low-carb, low-calorie and simplify cocktail mixology, the company says.
They are best enjoyed with simple mixers, like sparkling water, or enjoyed on the rocks or as a chilled shot.
In addition to its 100-proof Dulce Vida Tequilas, the new Dulce Vida 80-proof variants and 70-proof flavors create a larger tequila portfolio.
Bottled immediately after distillation, Blanco is the most vibrant, the company says, with notes of citrus with a sweet agave finish. Dulce Vida Reposado is aged from 9 to 11 months in American Oak whisky barrels, with aromas of fruit and caramel. Full-bodied as a sipping tequila, Dulce Vida Añejo features aromas of vanilla and cinnamon and is aged up to 24 months in select American Oak whisky barrels.
Dulce Vida was formed in 2009 in Austin, TX and is now sold in 17 states.
