DENVER, April 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Familia Camarena Tequila announces a three-year marketing sponsorship deal with the Colorado Rockies as the team swings into home opener action today at Coors Field. Introduced in limited markets in 2010, Familia Camarena Tequila officially launched in Colorado last month and is rapidly expanding distribution across the country.

"At Camarena, we are constantly on the pulse of new opportunities to engage consumers on a richer and more dynamic level," said Gerard Thoukis, Director of Marketing for Camarena. "The Colorado Rockies have done a standup job of layering a holistic in-stadium exposure program for Camarena that dials into the fan experience while building awareness and, more importantly, consumer trial of our product."

"Familia Camarena Tequila is a great addition to the Colorado Rockies business roster," said Greg Feasel, Rockies Chief Operating Officer. "We have invested a great amount of time and effort into the recent improvements to our in-stadium experience. Exciting, fresh brands like Familia Camarena Tequila are an integral part of bringing our vision to life and we look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship."

Announcement of Familia Camarena Tequila's partnership with the Rockies is commensurate with the announcements of marketing sponsorship agreements between Familia Camarena Tequila and five other high profile Major League Baseball clubs across the league.
