The world is about to get a second dose of the iconic Ron Burgundy with the premiere of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues on December 18th. Hornitos Tequila is celebrating his return with a cocktail that, like its namesake, is kind of a big deal: The Burgundy.
In the long-awaited sequel, Burgundy and his Channel 4 news team make their way from San Diego to NYC for a stint on a 24-hour cable news network, GNN. Anchorman 2 will bring back cast favorites from the first film, as well as some amazing cameos. Though much of the plot has been kept under-wraps, one thing is certain: if Anchorman 2 has as many quotable one-liners as the first one, this might go down as the funniest sequel in history.
Hornitos The Burgundy pays homage to the legend himself, and if he were to take a sip, it would make Ron Burgundy change his “scotchy scotch scotch” mantra to “tequila tequila tequila.”

The Hornitos family of tequilas keeps Don Francisco Javier Sauza’s legacy alive, using the same high standards to cultivate the best and most flavorful agaves, molding them into premium tequilas that everyone can enjoy. He brought the celebrated spirit to new heights with the agave-robust Reposado, broke the rules to create a crystalline Plata, went above and beyond tequila standards to make an ultra smooth and aromatic Añejo, and now his legacy lives on with our latest innovation Lime Shot— proving that Hornitos is Not Just Any Tequila.
