NEW YORK, June 1, 2021 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Lobos 1707 Tequila & Mezcal is proud to share that Lobos 1707 Tequila, Reposado was awarded the Double Gold medal by the 2021 New York International Spirits Competition (NYISC). Lobos 1707 is an independent spirits producer that blends heritage and innovation. Inspired by his ancestor of the same name, Founder and Chief Creative Officer Diego Osorio launched Lobos 1707 in 2020 with CEO and brand-builder Dia Simms and early backer, legendary athlete and cultural icon LeBron James.

Featuring unique and elevated flavor profiles influenced by both old and new world techniques, Lobos 1707 Tequilas and Mezcal are cultivated from 100% blue weber agave. Lobos 1707 Tequila, Reposado reaches its robust flavor by resting for over six slow months in American white oak barrels. The liquid is blended with a touch of Lobos 1707 Tequila, Extra Añejo and finished in the brand’s historic Pedro Ximénez (PX) wine barrels using the solera system method. The liquid is also additive free; both the color and flavor are natural results of the aging process and PX finish. Reposado revolutionizes any drink with spicy aromas and audacious flavor.
