Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 1, 2009
A new kosher and certified organic tequila was introduced to Texas at the Beyond the Lights Charity Golf Tournament Friday, March 27th. 4 Copas Tequila, made in Jalisco, Mexico, was served on one the course as a pleasant surprise for golfers. The celebrity tournament, sponsored by actors from the acclaimed Friday Night Lights television show, benefits high school football players with spinal cord injuries.
4Copas Texas was pleased to be included as a sponsor of the tournament, started by Friday Night Lights actors Kyle Chandler and Brad Leland. The tournament supports two non-profit organizations, The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis and Gridiron Heroes. The Buoniconti Fund, established in 1992 and committed to seeing millions walk again, has the distinction of having scientists report a 70 percent return of normal walking in experimental models.
Importer Julio Gomez Rejon, said, "The Golf tournament was beautiful, and the people were great. It was an honor to meet the doctors and celebrities."
He continued, "We served them the organic margarita which uses 1 oz. of our agave nectar, 2 oz. of the 4Copas silver and 1.5 oz of lime juice...it's a very smooth drink. It also helped that B.J. Gonzalez, an award winning Bartender with AM-Limelight, mixed their margaritas."
The tequila is the the first kosher, organic tequila to be imported into the U.S., the Absolute Winner at the San Francisco World Wine & Spirits Competition 2005, and one of the world's top 5 spirits of 2006 according to Wine and Spirits magazine. The Tequila, which is already sold in California, Hawaii, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and Canada, will now be sold by Fiesta Distributors in San Antonio and Twin Liquors in Austin.
Rejon added, "I wanted to import the Tequila because it is an excellent spirit. The methanol is taken out of the alcohol so it does not give you a headache or hangover. I am also proud of the fact that it is an all natural, green product. It is free from insecticides and no artificial colors and sugars are used to accelerate the fermentation process."
