The Austin, TX, company this week announced the release of five new versions, including lime- and grapefruit-infused 35% abv (70 proof) tequilas utilizing real fruit and "all natural flavors." They join a new lineup of 40% abv (80 proof) blanco, reposado, and añejo versions to complement the original line of seven 100-proof tequilas. The new reposado is aged from 9 to 11 months and the new añejo up to 24 months in used American white oak barrels. All products are made in Mexico.
Dulce Vida Spirits was recently purchased by a new beverage investor company called Milestone Brands, headed by Eric Dopkins who had been CEO of the Deep Eddy Vodka Distillery in Austin.
“Dulce Vida has seen amazing growth since our acquisition, and we’re thrilled with the launch of these naturally-infused flavors,” Dopkins said. “These cocktail-ready category disruptors continue our standards in providing healthier cocktail solutions and handcrafted products.”
