About Cincoro

In July 2016, five friendly competitors met for dinner and bonded over their shared passion for tequila. After many more adventures together, this group of five founding partners set out with one mission: to create the finest tequila anyone has ever tasted. Cincoro Tequila is uniquely made with 100% Weber Blue agave from private farms in both the highland and lowland regions of Jalisco, Mexico. The agave is hand-selected and slow-cooked in a small batch process, distilling the highland and lowland tequilas separately, before blending them together to create the Cincoro signature taste profile. This is the heart of Cincoro: a naturally rich and delicious family of tequilas that are smooth on the palate with a complex, long finish. Cincoro Tequila is a taste experience unlike any other, created to be sipped neat, but also to elevate cocktails. For more information about Cincoro, please visit www.Cincoro.com and @Cincoro.

 

The Cincoro family portfolio offers five luxurious tequila expressions with SRP per 750 mL bottle starting at $89.99 for Blanco, $109.99 for Reposado, $149.99 for Añejo, $349.99 for Gold, and $1,699.99 for Extra Añejo and the core three expressions available with SRP per 375 mL bottle starting at $44.99 for Blanco, $54.99 for Reposado, and $74.99 for Añejo.
