CIL US Wines & Spirits, the American subsidiary of independent and family-owned Camus Wines & Spirits, and GDL Imports today announced a distribution agreement providing CIL US with the immediate and exclusive right to distribute Trianon Tequila in the US.
Trianon Tequila is a small-batch, hand-crafted tequila from the town of Amatitán, in the Mexican state of Jalisco, known to be the birthplace of tequila. Made from blue agave grown at the foot of El Volcán de Tequila, Trianon was launched in Tennessee in late 2012 and will now be additionally available in Florida, New York and Georgia.
“From the very beginning we have not only been impressed by the quality of Camus’ products and professionalism of their team, but also their philosophy about bringing a new, super-premium spirit to market,” said Eduardo Gomez, President GDL Imports. “Trianon Tequila is in perfect alignment with this vision.”
“The market for high-quality super-premium tequilas in the US is thriving,” said Matthew Grace, CEO CIL US Wines & Spirits. “More than just another tequila to add to the already cluttered category, with expertise garnered by three generations of Maestros Tequileros guiding each batch, Trianon Tequila over-delivers on consumer expectations at the super-premium price. As a brand that is true to its heritage and the craft of making tequila, it is an ideal addition to the CIL portfolio.”
Trianon Tequila focuses on educating the consumer about how to identify a high-quality tequila using the Trianon Rub, an adapted tool of the trade from Maestros Tequileros. The brand owners are also committed to utilizing small, local, and Mexican-based businesses in order to maintain authenticity of the brand and promote income opportunities in the region.
