We are honored that Playboy listed Tres Agaves among so many exceptional Tequila-centric establishments across the United States
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 10, 2009
Tres Agaves Mexican Kitchen and Tequila Lounge is proud to announce that it has been chosen as one of Playboy.com's Top Ten Tequila Lounges in the U.S. Not only its festive atmosphere, but its extensive programs to educate both staff and guests played a big part in Playboy.com's decision to place Tres Agaves among the Tequila lounge elite.
"We are honored that Playboy listed Tres Agaves among so many exceptional Tequila-centric establishments across the United States," explained Eric Rubin, managing partner for Tres Agaves Restaurants. "We pride ourselves on our great Jaliscan cuisine and margaritas but more importantly our knowledge of Tequila and the Jaliscan culture that we love to share with our guests at Tres Agaves. We are thrilled to have been chosen by Playboy.com for their Top Ten List of Tequila Lounges in the U.S."
Tequila's popularity throughout the world continues to explode. In a report by Dow Jones Newswires in January 2009 (as reported by Tequila.net):
The Jalisco-based Tequila Regulatory Council said national production last year rose 10% to 312 million liters, with production of Tequila made entirely from the blue agave plant up 20% from 2007 to 163 million liters. Exports rose 1.7% to 137 million liters, with 100% agave Tequila exports up 5% to 35 million liters, the council said.
The U.S. continues to be the biggest foreign market for Tequila exports, followed by the European Union. A record 1 million tons of agave were used last year to produce Tequila, the council added.
Tres Agaves continues to intensify their Tequila education program for their employees and will soon offer more hands-on opportunities for guests and dedicated Tequila connoisseurs to expand their knowledge. "We can now claim that Tres Agaves is a Tequilero through the recent launch of our exclusive Tres Agaves-Tequila Casa Noble Single Barrel Reposado," explained Rubin. "Tres Agaves is the first Northern California Casa Noble account to participate in the program." Only 60 cases were bottled and will only be available to taste at Tres Agaves Restaurants. Individual bottles retail for $64.99 at the Tres Agaves Tequila Shop in Roseville, CA. Bottles are available for shipping by phone at 916/782-4455.
"As our beverage program grows we're looking for new opportunities to 'walk the talk' in Tequila knowledge such as accreditation for the program. We are constantly seeking new ways to take our Tequila knowledge to the next level," explained Rubin.
"Americans are embracing the complexities of Tequila and appreciating the art in a great Tequila cocktail or traditional margarita," added Rubin. "We look forward to toasting this great honor from Playboy.com with our guests."
The original Tres Agaves Mexican Kitchen and Tequila Lounge is located at 130 Townsend St. in San Francisco, one block north of AT&T ballpark in the South Beach neighborhood. In 2009 a second location and Tequila exclusive bottle shop opened in the Fountains at Roseville center in Roseville, CA near Sacramento.
