The founders of Dos Primos Tequila – country-music artist Thomas Rhett and his cousin, Jeff Worn – are introducing the latest Dos Primos family member: Dos Primos Tequila Reposado. The reposado tequila is made from blue agave sourced from estates in Los Altos and the valley area of Jalisco, Mexico, and is aged for six months in used bourbon barrels. The finished product is golden in color, with hints of dried fruit, vanilla and oak, the company says.
“When Jeff and I started the Dos Primos Tequila company four years ago, we knew we wanted to continue to expand our tequila family,” says 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 outside the city of Arandas, Mexico. Rodolfo González, 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,” says González. “This latest Dos Primos product is a gorgeous and delicious reposado tequila that is smooth and versatile.”
“Our name is our word – and our signatures represent our commitment to the process and the product, from field to bottle,” says Worn. “Dos Primos Reposado is a fantastic-tasting tequila, and its introduction only strengthens our dedication and commitment to the Dos Primos brand.”
Dos Primos Tequila Reposado’s suggested retail price is $49.99 per 750-ml. bottle. It is available in select U.S. markets beginning March 2022.
