It is memorable, session-able, consistent, gender-neutral, and could even be considered an improvement upon America's favorite cocktail, the margarita. We are creating, distributing and marketing the finest naturally-infused spirit on the market. I would personally like to thank the hundreds of people involved in our on-premise accounts on a daily basis: distributors, managers, bartenders and servers. It's a collaborative team effort and we are very grateful."
