Country music star Thomas Rhett and his cousin, pecan magnate Jeff Worn, are releasing Dos Primos Tequila Reposado at the beginning of March. The new expression comes after the two released the first tequila, a Blanco, in January last year.
Featuring hand-harvested 100% blue agave sourced from estates in Los Altos and the valley area of Jalisco, Mexico, the Dos Primos Tequila Reposado is aged for at least six months in used bourbon barrels. The finished product is bright and golden in colour, with hints of dried fruit, smooth vanilla and toasted oak on the palate.
“When Jeff and I started the Dos Primos Tequila company four years ago, we knew we wanted to continue to expand our tequila family,” said Thomas Rhett. “We’ve been so blown away by the response to our Blanco and couldn’t be more pumped to now introduce a reposado together. Similar to our original goal, we’ve worked hard to make this as versatile as possible and seamlessly fit into any activity, regardless of the time of year.”
Dos Primos is distilled at Destiladora González Lux, located just outside the city of Arandas, Mexico, in the highlands of Jalisco. Rodolfo González, a third-generation master distiller at Destiladora González Lux, worked with Thomas Rhett and Worn to create the taste profiles of the Blanco and reposado offerings.
“I worked closely with the founders throughout the distillation process to ensure we were creating a tequila that would exceed standards and expectations,” said González. “This latest Dos Primos product is a gorgeous and delicious reposado tequila that is smooth and versatile.”
The reposado tequila is packaged in a clear embossed-glass bottle and features a natural wood cork and genuine black-leather cord wrapped around the neck. The fabric label is hand-applied in Mexico and bears the signatures of Worn and Thomas Rhett.
“Our name is our word – and our signatures represent our commitment to the process and the product, from field to bottle,” said Worn. “Dos Primos Reposado is a fantastic-tasting tequila, and its introduction only strengthens our dedication and commitment to the Dos Primos brand.”
