Spirits of Mexico Competition Honors Brand for the Second Time
San Antonio, TX, September 21, 2009 – Casa 1921, producer and marketer of ultra-premium tequila, today announced that its 1921 Tequila Cream Liqueur took home the coveted Best of Category award as well as a Gold Medal in the flavors/cream category at the 2009 Spirits of Mexico Competition for the second consecutive year.
The 3rd Annual Spirits of Mexico Competition was held in San Diego last weekend. The Competition, which has grown considerably, includes all agave spirits. The judging panel consists of industry professionals with years of experience. The Competition is recognized as the premier agave competition in the US.
1921 is the original Tequila Cream. Made with the same blue agave as its sister brands, 1921 Tequila Cream combines the soft taste of cream with a touch of Mexican coffee. The delicious aromas of caramel and wild honey follow through to the flavors of cocoa, coffee latte and, of course, agave. Its low alcohol content contributes to its smoothness and makes it the perfect end to a wonderful meal and a luxurious ingredient in cocktails.
Juan Francisco Collado, President of 1921 Tequila said: “We know our crema de Mexico is something special and the Spirits of Mexico Competition is a wonderful validation. We use our 1921 Tequila Blanco as the base for our cream liqueur. The blue agave from the Jalisco Highlands produces the finest tequila and we only use agave grown in this special terroir in all our tequila expressions. It is said that ‘cream rises to the top’ and our 1921 Tequila Cream has certainly proven to be la crema de la crema
