Top Brands At The 2018 Chicago Summer Tequila Tasting Festival

Several brand representatives, media partners, guests, and friends alike made lasting connections as they tasted a variety of tequilas at the 2018 Summer Tequila Tasting Festival held on July 21st.

“Tequila is one of my favorite spirits and to bring people together on a summer day to enjoy in a variety of cities to be introduced to all types of tequilas and drink compliments was very exciting,” Social Scene president and co-founder William Holdeman said.

In Chicago, the tequila tasting festival was held at Estate and brought together several drinking enthusiasts from all over the city, and beyond. The attendees liked the music, the atmosphere, and the different tastings of tequila. Many of them expressed their interest to attend another event like this.

The participants also had the chance to vote for their favorite brands during the event. Out of more than 10 featured brands, four emerged on top. Here they are.




Camarena Summer Tequila Tasting Festival


Sounds like the favorite Latin dance Macarena? Just like the beat, Camarena is a brand that comes out lively, strong, and never boring. Tequilas from this company have also made it to the top brands during the 2018 Winter Tequila Festival earlier this year. Camarena takes pride in being one of the best in production, as it is also a distillery owned by a family.

Harvested in the Jalisco highlands, the ingredients form their variants, reposado and silver tequilas. The result is the right mix of flavor, alcohol content, temperature, and time-tested processes.

Dulce Vida Tequila


Dulce Vida Spirits


Dulce Vida Spirits was chosen as the favorite tequila brand for summer, as it also shows from their all-natural flavors: grapefruit and lime. Their products are made from organic and 100 percent Blue Agave from Los Altos. But just like their counterparts in the market, Dulce Vida also offers Añejo, Blanco, Extra Añejo, and Reposado. Unlike other brands around, they make sure to stand out with some of the other products on their line, and these include low calorie and low carb tequilas made from flavors of lime, grapefruit, and pineapple jalapeño.


Spice Note Tequila
