Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) November 22, 2012
Giving a preview of his Bonita Tequila, XZibit, the American rapper and actor will be showcasing his ultra-premium blanco tequila at this December's Phoenix Tequila Fest at US Airways Center.
Distilled an unprecedented 5 times to achieve maximum smoothness, Bonita Tequila is distilled from agave grown in the central lowlands of Jalisco, Mexico. Made from 100% USDA Certified Organic Blue Agave, Bonita's agave piña is roasted in traditional stone ovens for 96 hours and filtered three times using a proprietary cold filtration process.
Xzibit, a successful rapper, actor, and television host, was blown away by what Bonita had created. He knew at that moment that he had to make Bonita his own. Bonita was to become the tequila to define a new generation of hip, urban-savvy consumers who enjoy luxurious and artisan products with a modern flair. He became a partner of the company, co-owning Bonita Spirits with entrepreneur Chris Brown.
Xzibit joins the ever-growing list of celebrities such as Sammy Hagar, Vince Neil, Roger Clyne, Carlos Santana and Justin Timberlake who are affiliated with the popular spirit. He is distinctive in his complete involvement in the company as a co-owner of the Bonita Spirits Brand.
"Tequila is truly a global phenomenon which transcends all ages, ethnic backgrounds and cultures. We are thrilled to have Xzibit give a preview of his tequila at the Phoenix Tequila Fest before its formal launch in January. This event has become the platform for the newest labels to be showcased and sampled." - Juan Elias, Phoenix Tequila Fest
