Thomas Rhett and his cousin, Jeff Worn, have again expanded their line of Dos Primos Tequila, this time to introduce Dos Primos Tequila Añejo. This is the third offering in their tequila line which debuted in 2021. Dos Primos Tequila Añejo will be available in a 750 ml bottle in select U.S. markets beginning in March.
Thomas said, “Bringing Dos Primos to life initially with our Blanco tequila, then with Reposado and now Añejo, has been an incredible journey. Our Añejo is a super-smooth and flavorful tequila that can be enjoyed year-round, and we can’t wait for everyone to enjoy it with their friends and family.”
Thomas admits that when he first started drinking tequila, he had a less than pleasant experience. He tells us he hopes people learn, like he did, that not all tequilas are created the same. “I remember I had my very first sip of tequila when I was 22 years old. And I won’t say any brands, but it was just a rough experience. And I think a lot of people have those memories of college or, you know, early adulthood where you’re like, I will never touch tequila again because of XYZ. And I think once I started gettin’ into the craft of tequila and the process of it and the history of it, and how much time goes into making it, I just got really inspired to learn more about the product itself. And when I started tasting tequilas that were considered sipping tequilas, I was like, ‘Dang, this is not what I tasted when I was 21 years old.'”
Dos Primos Tequila is made from hand-harvested 100% blue agave sourced from estates in Los Altos and the valley area of Jalisco, Mexico, and aged for at least 13 months in used bourbon barrels.
