Introducing The Zevada Family Gran Reserva


Austin, Texas-Based Z Tequila Adds Gran Reserva to the Z Tequila Portfolio of 100% Agave Spirits

Austin, Texas – December 7, 2014 – After almost 40 years in the spirits industry, Austin’s own Z Tequila announces the release of The Zevada Family Gran Reserva. The Gran Reserva (classified as Extra Anejo by the Mexican Tequila Council) is aged four years to perfection. Those who know Jose “Pepe” Zevada are drawn to his warm spirit and understand immediately that Z Tequila is much more than just another Tequila, It’s about love of life, friends, and family. The Z Tequila brand and founder Pepe Zevada are proud to release this new product during a time of year where friends and family gather to celebrate.
The Zevada Family Gran Reserva reflects the culmination of the Z Tequila portfolio and the high quality vision of the brand. Pepe himself participated in the definition of the character and the personality of this superb 100% agave juice with our highly experienced Master Distiller.
As Pepe himself says, “There is a big difference between a nice bottle of tequila and tequila in a nice bottle.” However, the design is still elegant and distinctive, resulting in an attractive packaging that stands out, but keeps the same true values of the original product line.
Produced in limited edition, only 500 cases, and bearing his own signature, Pepe delivers his promise of the ultimate warranty of quality: The Zevada Family Name. “Ask for The Z” and The Zevada Family Gran Reserva wherever you buy fine liquors.

Austin, Texas-Based Pepe Zevada Z Tequila Adds “Platinum” to it’s list of Accolades

Z Tequila continues to prove it has award-winning quality by taking home one of the industry’s most prestigious awards.

Austin, Texas – June 5, 2014 – Z Tequila, and the man who created it, has long been captivating the Austin market with authenticity, tradition and quality. Meanwhile, the list of awards for this locally-based, value priced, 100% Agave Tequila continues to grow.

In 2012 all three Tequila marques, Blanco, Reposado and Anejo took home medals from The San Francisco World Spirits Competition, where 34 judges comprised of industry professionals “blind-taste” the products. Blind tastings are essential to insure taste is the primary criteria and that no brand preference interferes with palate. The Blanco took home the highest award, the coveted Double-Gold.

Z Tequila recently learned it has been awarded another top award from SIP, the largest consumer tasting competition conspicuously absent of industry influence. The SIP Awards took place in California this May. Z Tequila won the highest award, Platinum, for both the Blanco and Reposado, while earning a gold metal for the Anejo, its most aged marque.

Participation in the SIP Awards has become synonymous with elite quality as judged by the selective tastes of the consumer. “This pragmatic and refreshing model of evaluation provides an honest stage for feedback and recognition” says SIP Awards founder, Paul Hashemi. “There is no better salute to superior quality and fine spirits, than winning the consumer panel’s vote in a completely blind tasting.”

Jose “Pepe” Zevada, Z Tequila Founder and President explained, “Our goal was to create a great tasting tequila everyone will love to sip and mix! We are thrilled to be awarded such high ranking by consumers. This tells us we are doing something right.”

Glynn Bloomquist, Z Tequila ZEO adds, “ As we continue our rapid growth throughout Texas, these awards solidify the great value Z Tequila offers”.



Catering to the opinions and palates of the discerning public, the SIP Awards presents a unique, spirit judging competition, unaffected by industry bias. This pragmatic and refreshing model of evaluation provides an honest stage for feedback and recognition where top brands showcase their achievements.
