Peter Pace, National Brand Director for Tierras, said "I have been in the spirits industry for over 20 years in one form or another, and have had the pleasure and privilege of working on some great brands. Tequila Tierras is undoubtedly one of the most rewarding and fulfilling brands I have worked on. It is not only delicious, unique and exciting but it has arrived in a very timely fashion. This is an amazing brand, not just in its outstanding quality but the social relevance of a 100% USDA Organic Tequila. Fun, delicious, and relevant. What more could you ask for?"
