Tequila Aficionado Media Announces the 2015 Brands Of Promise Award Winners!

Honors Bestowed During LIVE Blab Webcast

For Immediate Release!

PLATINUMFINAL2015March 14, 2016, San Antonio, TXTequila Aficionado Media’s Third Annual 2015 Brands Of Promise© Awards were broadcast LIVE on Blab in Tequila, Mezcal and other assorted agave-related categories. See the full list of medal recipients here.

Among the brilliant stand outs of 2015, Ambhar Tequila took the Judges’ Best-of-Show accolade scoring highly in several categories. Recent upstarts GOZA and Papa Bueno also made significant showings.  In a surprise return to the Brands Of Promise© Reposado class, Del Bravo Spirits unanimously took the Platinum award with Route 66 tequila.

Legacy brands Orendáin, Milagro, Tequila 1921, Centinela and Herradura were well represented in both the High-End and Value segments, while Dulce Vida and Suerte convincingly cornered the Extra Añejo tequila market.

In what proved to be the toughest bracket for the judges to date, Malinalli Tequila swept the Platinum trophy in the hard fought Blanco division, with Ambhar, El Mayor, and Mamalón tequilas close on its heels.

The surging Mezcal classification was dominated by the popular Gracias A Dios brand, while Montelobos and Amarás collected Golds in each of their groups.

Gold Medal Winner Lisa Elovich, brand owner of Organic Tequila One With Life, was ecstatic, saying, “Thank you so much! It is such an honor to get this award. I know this will help us with marketing and distribution.” She graciously added, “Congratulations to all of the nominees and winners! So happy to be part of it!”

In an equally gracious statement made over their Instagram account, medal recipient Papa Bueno Tequila wrote, “We are honored to have been among this impressive group of nominees! We love tequila and congratulate all the winners and thank Tequila Aficionado for the time, humor and love they bring! Definitely Bueno!”

About the Brands Of Promise Awards

All brands were judged by Founder, Alex Perez and CEO, M.A. “Mike” Morales, as well as by other Tequila Aficionado staff, on how they performed during Tequila Aficionado’s wildly popular Sipping Off The Cuff™ video series seen regularly on TequilaAficionado.com and viewable on its YouTube channel.

Unlike other spirits contests, The Brands Of Promise™ Awards does not require participating agave spirit brands to pay an entry fee.  It also does not charge winners additional hefty licensing tariffs for the rights to use the medal award graphics on their labels, neck tags, shelf talkers, brochures, point-of-sales materials and websites.

Papa Bueno Anejo Tequila Review

In this episode of Tequila Aficionado’s Sipping off the Cuff, Mike Morales and Alex Perez taste and discuss Papa Bueno Tequila Anejo.

 

About Papa Bueno Tequila

papa bueno, tequila, blanco, reposado, anejoWe know it’s best to let nature do its work before we do ours, so for seven years we patiently wait for the highland sun to craft the perfect crop. When the time arrives, the plump, ripe agave is hand-harvested, and cut for the brick ovens at our distillery in the legendary tequila town of Antotonilco El Alto. Once the piña, or heart of the agave, has properly cooked it yields a warm honey flavored nectar, and we begin the fermentation and distillation processes. That’s when the magic happens.  Papa Bueno Silver is double distilled to be smooth and ready to enjoy immediately, but for the richer-flavored Papa Bueno Añejo, our tequila must age in oak barrels for at least a year. 100% agave. 100% passion.  Whoa! Smooth.

Being Bueno

means many things.  It is an attitude and a view that sees that our world works well with an element of fun, a measure of responsibility and an upbeat soundtrack.  We invite you to define it for yourself. Spread the spirit and share the spirits.  Enjoy and accept, lift and encourage — fun is the right thing!
Most of all be a good friend, be a good influence and be Bueno.
​Please enjoy Papa Bueno Tequila responsibly.
