Blue Nectar Tequila (, the hand-crafted, super-premium Tequila focused on agave-forward flavor profiles, celebrates its five year anniversary by announcing the launch of an integrated communications campaign. The campaign will support sales growth in the U.S. market of their four Tequila expressions – Silver, Reposado Extra Blend, Reposado Special Craft, and Añejo Founder’s Blend.

To execute the integrated communications campaign, Blue Nectar Tequila has retained Colangelo & Partners, a wine and spirits integrated communications agency with offices in New York and San Francisco. The campaign will include media relations, social media, trade outreach and events.

Father-and-son duo, BN Bahadur and Nikhil Bahadur, co-founded Blue Nectar Tequila out of a birthday tradition of swapping bottles of Tequila that ultimately led to several trips to Mexico in search of the best producers and suppliers. Their passion and quest ultimately led them to create their own Tequila and partner with another family-owned company to be their grower and distiller.

After nearly two years of experimentation, Master Blender Guillermo Garcia-Lay, a former Bacardi Master Blender, has helped BN and Nikhil achieve the best combinations of distillation, aging, and blending methods. Blue Nectar Tequila is distinguished by its unique blends and infusions: Blue Nectar Reposado Special Craft is infused with essential oils and a hint of agave nectar; the Blue Nectar Reposado Extra Blend is blended with three year old extra añejo; and the Blue Nectar Añejo Founder’s Blend is blended with five year old extra añejo. The results are small-batch, specially-crafted Tequilas from the valley of Jalisco with a unique flavor profile compared to the more common highland Tequilas found today.

Colangelo & Partners’ integrated communications program will not only focus on generating buzz about the brand in the media and on social media, but will also educate consumers and trade about the spirit and its origins.

“By working in partnership with Colangelo & Partners, we strive to introduce consumers to Tequilas that stay true to tradition, yet are unique in their own right. Our four Tequilas are distinct, yet well-balanced with an agave-forward, earthy body, which comes from the rich volcanic soils of the valley,” said Co-Founder and COO Nikhil Bahadur.
