PaQui Tequila

PaQui Tequila

PaQuí is challenging the status quo of the tequila market. Its authentic Mexican branding signals luxury status and captures the joy of tequila ( PaQuí means “To Be Happy” in Aztec). The PaQui profile stands out with floral, grassy aromas, sweet agave fruit and a surprisingly smooth finish. PaQuí’s branding and liquid excellence believes that it can compete with the biggest luxury tequila brands. What we need now are the resources to make tequila drinkers aware of this delicious drinking experience.
