The Pepper Festival is proud to announce that Dulce Vida Organic Tequila – headquartered in beautiful Austin, Texas – has become a major sponsor of the festival. Not only is Dulce Vida an up and coming brand of tequila, they just so happen to make a Pineapple-Jalapeño Tequila! We can’t wait to make Pineapple-Jalapeño Margaritas for festival goers on June 23 at Gold Country Fairgrounds in Auburn, CA.
Dulce Vida Organic Tequila starts with the finest ingredients. The foundation of their tequila differentiates them from the competition: Organic. 100% Blue Agave. Los Altos (Highlands). Handcrafted. Discover what happens when they infuse their award-winning 100% blue agave blanco tequila with refreshing all-natural flavors: Lime and Grapefruit. You can find Dulce Vida Tequila in the Greater Sacramento, California area at BevMo!, Total Wine & More, Whole Foods Market, Raley’s and WinCo.

The concept of sustainability was very strategic in the selection of their tequila production facility. The facility not only had to be capable of making an award winning product, but also had to meet requirements for organic production and overall sustainability measures – being a kind partner to the environment and local community. A complete recapture of all production waste is performed and yields a nutrient-rich soil supplement to the local farming community. Furthermore, as a by-product of waste collection & processing, methane gas is captured, creating an energy source utilized to power the facility.
DISTILLED IN MEXICO
Dulce Vida produces their tequila in the village of San Ignacio Cerro Gordo at Campanario (NOM 1443) utilizing a Maquila approach to our operations, whereby their team is actively engaged in every detail, from harvest through distillation & aging. This vertically integrated approach is very different from an arms-length transaction of importing product, or buying liquid from a distillery.
They do things differently at Dulce Vida. They make tequila the way that tequila has always tasted best: pure and authentic. They do not contract with a distillery for the purchase of liquid. They are completely vertically integrated, ranging from working with the community of agave farmers, distillation management, and aging in our own barrels. Their attention to detail and complete involvement result in a truly spectacular product.
