Don’t let summer slip away without enjoying Dulce Vida tequila. Dulce Vida, a USDA-certified organic brand, offers a range of tequilas made with 100 percent Blue Weber agave. The premium spirits brand, founded in Austin, Texas, in 2009, is produced in Jalisco, Mexico, in the village of San Ignacio Cerra Gordo. Sustainability and attention to detail are at the heart of every step, from harvest to distillation to aging. The expansive portfolio includes a core range of Blanco Resposado and Añejo tequila.


Dulce Vida also offers infused tequila made with real fruit. Flavors include pineapple jalapeño, lime and grapefruit. Additionally, Dulce Vida offers ready-to-drink cocktails including paloma, margarita and watermelon margarita.
