ST. LOUIS and NEW YORK, March 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Palm Bay International, one of North America's premier wine and spirits importers, has been appointed as the exclusive agent for 901 Silver Tequila in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Bahamas, U.S. Virgin Islands and for duty free, effective April 1, 2011.
To achieve a superior level of quality and expression, 901 Silver Tequila is made using only 100% Blue Weber Agave. Unlike many tequilas, it is triple-distilled using the most innovative distillation methods available for extraordinary tequila. Perfected through three generations of craftsmanship and more than 60 years of experience, 901 Silver Tequila is hand-crafted in small batches to achieve the highest standards and finest expression of tequila. Deftly balanced, it delivers a fruity nose and finishes with subtle hints of agave and exceptional smoothness.
On April 1st, 901 Silver Tequila will reveal its new packaging to the spirits world. The dynamic and impactful design will feature the same signature tall, angular bottle and silver cap, enhanced by a distinctive new red ribbon painted on the front, which houses an eye-catching, white 901 logo.
"I am thrilled to be collaborating with Palm Bay International," said Justin Timberlake, CEO and Founder of 901 Silver Tequila. "With such an incredible force behind the brand, the possibilities for 901 are very exciting."
