Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — National Tequila Day is just around the corner on Tuesday, July 24 and Tres Agaves Tequila is a great choice for a celebration because of its award-winning quality and affordable price point. Tres Agaves’ Tequilas have won many awards but the most recent is especially sweet as they were one of only three brands to have their entire collection selected as Finalists (90 points or higher) in the Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2012 Tequila category. Tres Agaves’ Blanco, Reposado and Añejo each received 92 points in their respective categories making it one of the most awarded brands in the competition. Tres Agaves went on to sweep all three first place Chairman’s trophies in the related Ultimate Cocktail Challenge, further solidifying Tres Agaves as a Tequila that is not only extraordinary neat, but also that stands up exceptionally well in cocktails. Tres Agaves’ Tequilas are designed to offer retailers and consumers the perfect margarita and also complement their REAL margarita recipe featured in their low-calorie, organic margarita mix sold at retailers throughout the U.S. For more information on where to find Tres Agaves Tequila, Organic Margarita Mix and Cocktail-Ready Agave Nectar, visit here.
The Ultimate Spirits Challenge was held March 5-9 in New York City and was judged by some of the most esteemed experts in the spirits industry. Per its website, “The purpose of Ultimate Spirits Challenge is to identify, recognize and reward those products which stand out in their respective categories, showing superior quality. Multiple panels of the highest-qualified experts blind-tasted each entry by classification in appropriately grouped flights within each major spirits category, scoring each on the 100-point scale. Products that scored 90 points or higher were then evaluated blind once again, in newly-created groupings by a different panel of judges. Top scoring products were then reviewed again to determine a select group of finalists…” To see all of the individual scores and tasting notes, visit here.
“We are thrilled that our Blanco, Reposado and Añejo all qualified as Finalists in each of their categories against such stiff competition,” explained Eric Rubin, Brand Director of Tres Agaves Products. “To be one of only three brands to be a Finalist in all three categories and then to sweep the Chairman’s Trophies in the cocktail component of the competition is validation of the hard work we have put in to create a quality, craft Tequila.”
