SUMMERGODS, the small batch premium tequila created by multi-platinum recording artist/songwriter Stephan Jenkins of Third Eye Blind, will be introduced at two exclusive east coast events; Wednesday, July 10 at the Rose Bar in New York City and Monday, July 15 at Rhythm & Spirits in Atlantic City. The Atlantic City event sold out in less than 24 hours.
“SUMMERGODS is the culmination of my quest to find the ultimate blanco tequila,” said Jenkins. “I wanted a tequila that I could enjoy with my friends and I couldn’t find it. I met with the master distillers at Casa Maestri and after testing and tasting multiple small batch samples with my friends, crew and bandmates, we decided to create the purest expression of tequila fueled by passion and a perfectionist attitude. SUMMERGODS is that result. We made SUMMERGODS to enjoy with our friends and now we will share with you.”
SUMMERGODS will be previewed and poured on July 10 at the Gramercy Park Hotel’s Rose Bar where Jenkins will perform a short acoustic set for the invited crowd. He’ll then move from the stage to the bar where Stephan will join the Rose Bar bartenders creating select SUMMERGODS signature cocktails and sipping pours for guests. Please note that this is an invite only VIP Press event. Respected members of the media can RSVP here no later than 7PM Eastern on July 8.
On Monday, July 15 in Atlantic City, Jenkins will perform a short acoustic performance where fans will receive a bottle of SUMMERGODS as part of their ticket purchase. Bottle signings, signature cocktails, photos with Stephan and the opportunity to purchase additional bottles of SUMMERGODS before its commercial release are included in the ticket price. Only 100 tickets will be made available for those 21 and over. Tickets can be purchased here: http://bit.ly/SUMMERGODSAtlanticCity
SUMMERGODS tequila is Jenkins’ collaboration with master distiller Casa Maestri in Jalisco, MX in Destiladora de Valle de Tequila. With a nod to sustainable agriculture and fair-trade employment practices, SUMMERGODS is created from a discrete age-old process of a single distillery, blending sweet, sun-drenched agave from the highlands with the herbaceous piñas from the lowlands’ rich volcanic soil.
This is a connoisseur’s tequila with a unique presence in the nose and smoothness in the finish. Mint, lychee, hibiscus, cedar, and flowering oregano undertones yield to notes of spiced caramel, plantains and vanilla bean. Elemental purity is the key — a reflection of the trident on the label. This handcrafted, small batch tequila is best savored as a sipping tequila served neat, or in your finest cocktails.
SUMMERGODS: the sun, the soil, and the heart of the agave.
