Well, I say we take those jobs back that we lost to NAFTA! Let's do something that some other country does better! How about electronics!? How about automobiles!? How about Tequila??
I like your thinkin'.
Tequila 5150 comes straight to you from Hollister, CA. No, not the clothing stores that smell like "Teen Spirit" and think that you're fat, but a town just outside of Gilroy, CA. The owner of a popular winery in the area has planted 10 acres of Agave, the plant used for tequila. Okay, everyone probably already knows that it's the plant used for tequila.
I'm sure lawsuits are on their way as, like Scotch or Champagne, only tequila made in the state of Jalisco in Mexico can actually be called "tequila" according to a 2006 trade agreement, though that's pretty disputed so maybe 5150 is planning on playing in the grey area.
5150 has already gotten the nod from the San Diego Spirits competition in the form of two gold medals and one silver.
No pricing or availability as of yet.
