Reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year, Thomas Rhett surprised fans today (Monday, Jan 11), by revealing a brand new project: Dos Primos Tequila. In collaboration with his cousin, pecan magnate Jeff Worn, the two are working together to introduce the new ultra-premium tequila brand.
Spanish for “Two Cousins,” Dos Primos is a blanco tequila made from hand-harvested 100% blue agave sourced from estates in Los Altos and the valley area of Jalisco, Mexico. The finished product is crystal-clear with earthy herbal notes on the front palate, followed by smooth floral and citrus hints.
“Our decision to create a new tequila brand grew out of just loving being with family,” Rhett shared in a recent press release. “Jeff and I wanted to create a tequila that was expertly crafted and could be enjoyed year-round – regardless of the season or activity – with the people we care about most. Dos Primos is all about who we are and what’s important to us.”
As Rhett shared the exciting news with fans across social media, superstar duo Dan + Shay jokingly added,” do u need a theme song?” referring to their hit record “Tequila”. Country music fans can agree, a Dan + Shay and Thomas Rhett “Tequila” remix could be exactly what we all need.
Dos Primos is distilled at Destiladora González Lux, located just outside the city of Arandas, Mexico, in the highlands of Jalisco. Third-generation Master Distiller Rodolfo González, who worked with Thomas Rhett and Worn to create the product’s taste profile, oversees the distillation process to ensure every drop of Dos Primos exceeds standards and expectations.
Dos Primos will be available in a 750 ml bottle in select U.S. markets beginning January 2021. For more information or to find a retailer near you, visit DosPrimosTequila.com.
