“Our new Añejo Tequila is our finest offering to-date – it’s created in the soulful land of Jalisco by our incredibly talented jimadors, but you can absolutely taste the Fort Worth grit and determination that is sealed in every bottle,” said Sarah Castillo, co-founder of La Pulga Spirits. “We pride ourselves on making vibrant tequilas with the taste of Mexican culture, passion, and flavor, and our Añejo is no exception. If you’re looking to support local, drink clean, and add a beautifully crafted tequila to your bar top, you’ll want to get your hands on La Pulga Añejo.”
