Dulce Vida Tequilas, recently acquired by newly formed alcohol beverage investor, Milestone Brands LLC, announces the introduction of 70-proof Dulce Vida Lime Tequila and Dulce Vida Grapefruit Tequila. Delivering outstanding quality for the price, Dulce Vida also adds an 80-proof portfolio (Blanco, Reposado and Añejo) to its existing lineup of 100 percent blue agave, organic, Los Altos tequila.

Like all Dulce Vida Spirits, Dulce Vida Lime and Dulce Vida Grapefruit hail from the Los Altos region of Jalisco in Mexico and are handcrafted from 100 percent blue agave. Infused with real fruit, Lime and Grapefruit are low-carb, low-calorie and simplify mixology for an easy Margarita or Paloma.

“Dulce Vida has seen amazing growth since our acquisition, and we’re thrilled with the launch of these naturally infused flavors,” said Eric Dopkins, Founder and CEO of Milestone Brands LLC. “These cocktail ready, category disruptors continue our standards in providing healthier cocktail solutions and handcrafted products.”

In addition to Dulce Vida’s award-winning 100-proof tequilas, the new 80-proof variants and 70-proof flavors create an impressive portfolio. Bottled immediately after distillation, Dulce Vida Blanco is the most vibrant with notes of citrus with a sweet agave finish. Aged from 9 to 11 months in American Oak whisky barrels, Reposado is the most versatile, with refreshing aromas of fruit and caramel and a mild, sweet finish. The full-bodied Añejo, aged up to 24 months in select American Oak whisky barrels, features aromas of vanilla and cinnamon.

Introducing Truly Spiked & Sparkling: A New Way To Drink Sparkling Water… Spiked!

Truly Spiked & Sparkling, a new clean, crisp and refreshing spiked sparkling water is hitting shelves today. With just 100 calories and 2 grams of carbs per serving, Truly Spiked & Sparkling (5% ABV) is the lowest-calorie and lowest-carb spiked sparkling water available, and it’s gluten-free.

The inspiration to experiment and develop Truly Spiked & Sparkling stemmed from two significant trends in the beverage world—growth in the consumption of carbonated bottled water in the U.S., which nearly doubled since 20121, and an overall interest in low-calorie alcoholic beverages as drinkers seek ways to make their calories work harder for them. Truly Spiked & Sparkling provides a delicious solution to enjoy both.

“A few years ago, I began noticing many of my friends and family members giving up traditional soda for flavored sparkling water,” said Casey O’Neill, a member of the innovation team behind Truly Spiked & Sparkling. “I started playing around with alcoholic versions as a side project over a year ago, realizing there was a need for something clean, crisp and sparkling, like traditional sparkling water, but for times when you want to imbibe! After much experimentation, we created the recipe for Truly Spiked & Sparkling and knew we had something great – refreshing, with a hint of fruit, but doesn’t fill you up or break the calorie bank.”

Every batch is crafted with simple ingredients, using absolutely no artificial flavors or sweeteners. Truly Spiked & Sparkling contains alcohol made from cane sugar. This isn’t the sparkling water you grew up drinking— Truly Spiked & Sparkling takes the timeless classic and gives it a modern, grown-up, spiked twist, also with a touch of fruit.

Truly Spiked & Sparkling is available in three delicious styles:

  • Colima Lime: Some of the world’s best limes are grown in Colima, a small state on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, including those used to make Truly Spiked & Sparkling Colima Lime. This style is slightly tart with a crisp, but subtle sweetness.
  • Grapefruit & Pomelo: This style has a fresh aroma of citrus on the nose, followed by tart and tangy notes. Pomelo, a lesser-known citrus fruit, contributes an undercurrent of sweetness to balance the grapefruit.
  • Pomegranate: Pomegranates are known for their juicy sweetness, complemented by a slight tart flavor. Truly Spiked & Sparkling Pomegranate is clean, crisp and refreshing with a hint of this juicy super fruit.
    Truly Spiked & Sparkling offers convenience and ease, perfect for active and social drinkers looking for a light, refreshing alternative to wine, light beer and cocktails.

Truly Spiked & Sparkling is available in 6-packs for a suggested retail price around $9.99-$10.99 (price varies by location). At the moment, Truly Spiked & Sparkling is available in nearly 20 major markets throughout the U.S. (and hopefully even more places very soon!)
