"The Chicago White Sox welcome Familia Camarena Tequila to our valued roster of corporate partners," said Brooks Boyer, White Sox Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "As with all of our partners, our commitment is to develop a marketing program that optimizes their brand exposure and enhances the fan experience at U.S. Cellular Field."

"As Camarena continues to expand distribution across the Midwest, Chicago is an important focus market for us to establish awareness at both the retailer and consumer levels," said Gerard Thoukis, Director of Marketing for Camarena.
