Posted on August 12, 2019

Irvine, Calif.—Tequila Comisario announced a partnership with Multi-Platinum entertainer Chris Young at a VIP event from the Grammy-nominated singer’s sold-out headlining concert at FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine, CA last night. The multi-award winning tequila brand is teaming up with Young as their new global ambassador for a major National marketing campaign, launching later this month.

"We are very delighted to officially welcome Chris Young to our family! Our ultra-premium tequilas are intended for the savvy and sophisticated connoisseur in-the-know and those looking for a quality tasting experience. Our Blanco makes an incredible margarita and is wonderfully smooth served straight up" said Luis Cota, President and CEO for Elite Beverage International. "With over four decades in the wine and spirits industry, I can truly say, that our portfolio of premium tequilas will surprise even the most refined palate."

In addition to a nationwide marketing and advertising campaign, Young will make appearances with Tequila Comisario at Applejack Wine & Spirits (8/12 Denver, CO) and Costco (8/16 Scottsdale, AZ).

“I’m so proud to be working with Comisario Tequila,” said Young. “It’s exciting to be a small part of their growth in the marketplace, and it’s truly the finest tequila I’ve ever had.”

Available in three delicious expressions; including the mixable Blanco, and the perfectly aged, Reposado and Añejo. These small-batch tequilas are double-distilled and cold-filtered, made from the finest, hand-selected 100% Blue Weber Agave. This Agave is grown in the rich red clay soil and cool climate of the Jalisco Highlands in Mexico for a minimum of seven years and harvested at the optimum time to produce the ultra-premium tequila. This ideal tequila is passionately produced by talented master distillers and agave growers, with generations of ex-perience and a reputable tequila lineage in Jalisco, Mexico. With deep roots in its estate owned and estate produced land, sourcing and producing perfect, ultra-premium tequila is now at its absolute finest.
