All good things come in threes — just ask Dos Primos Tequila founders Thomas Rhett and cousin, Jeff Worn. The two recently introduced Dos Primos Tequila Añejo, the latest Dos Primos variant. Beginning in March, select U.S. markets will carry the 750 ml bottle of tequila.
Produced from hand-harvested 100% blue agave acquired from Los Altos and Jalisco, Mexico estates, Dos Primos Tequila is aged for a minimum of 13 months within used bourbon barrels. The product sold in stores is bright amber with hints of brown spices, dried fruit and caramel.
“Bringing Dos Primos to life initially with our Blanco tequila, then with Reposado and now Añejo, has been an incredible journey,” shared Rhett. “Our Añejo is a super-smooth and flavorful tequila that can be enjoyed year-round, and we can’t wait for everyone to enjoy it with their friends and family.”
Dos Primos is distilled just outside of Arandas, Mexico at Destiladora Gonzalez Lux in the highlands of Jalisco. Third-generation master distiller Rodolfo Gonzalez worked with Rhett and Worn to develop Dos Primos Blanco, Reposado and Añejo.
“Great care and attention have gone into crafting Dos Primos Tequila, with each variant bringing its own unique flavor and richness to the palate,” explained Gonzalez. “Dos Primos Añejo continues that tradition. The Añejo expression is nothing short of superb, and it’s sure to be enjoyed by those who appreciate fine aged tequila.”
Packaged in a corked bottle with clear embossed-glass, Dos Primos Tequila Añejo features a black-leather cord around the neck. Each fabric label is applied by hand in Mexico, bearing the signatures of the two cousins.
“It seems like only yesterday when Thomas Rhett and I decided to create the kind of tequila we wanted to drink and share with our family and friends,” added Worn. “Now, we have our third Dos Primos Tequila — a delicious Añejo — and I couldn’t be more proud of it and how far this brand has come in the past four years.”
Dos Primos Tequila Añejo marks the third tequila variant from the Dos Primos brand. Super-premium crystal-clear Dos Primos Tequila Blanco made its debut in 2021, with golden-colored super-premium Dos Primos Reposado following close behind in 2022.
A 750ml bottle of Dos Primos Tequila retails from $39.99 to $54.99 and is dependent on the variant. To learn more about Dos Primos Tequila or to locate a retailer, go to DosPrimosTequila.com.
In addition to his tequila ventures, Rhett recently shared exciting news — the release of his brand-new single to Country radio that was inspired by his wife Lauren Akins. Co-written by Rhett alongside Julian Bunetta, Teddy Swims (whose real name is Jaten Dimsdale) and Josh Thompson, “Angels (Don’t Always Have Wings)” celebrates unconditional, patient love.
Previously titled “Angels,” the track first appeared on Thomas Rhett’s critically acclaimed sixth studio album, Where We Started.
“This is my favorite song from the album. I wrote it from a personal perspective, but I think it will resonate with a lot of people,” Rhett shared in a press release.
He continued to reveal how the tune was inspired by his wife, Lauren Akins, who he’s been married to for 10 years. “It’s about how none of us are perfect, and how lucky we are to have those people in our lives who show up and love us despite our flaws. I often look at my wife and think she’s truly an angel, for the love and grace she shows me every single day,” he explained.
The “What’s Your Country Song” singer will soon return to the road after a lengthy break from touring. The Georgia-native will bring his Bring The Bar To Your Tour to Canada in February with special guests Jordan Davis and Kameron Marlowe.
The Canadian trek is scheduled to kick off on February 9 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC and will continue through February 25, where the tour will wrap up in Ottawa, ON at the Canadian Tire Centre.
