Siempre Tequila has been gaining traction in it’s incubation phase and has proven to be scalable with expansion underway in several new key markets.
With the rising consumer demand for agave-based spirits, there has been an increase in mergers and acquisitions in the tequila sector. Recent acquisitions of companies like Tequila Avion (valued at $2B), Casamigos (valued at $1B) and Patron Spirits (valued at $5.1B) put Siempre and the tequila category as a whole in a great position.
In 3 short years, the company has grown from being listed in Sobeys Liquor and Safeway Wine & Spirits to a general listing with the world’s single largest spirit buyer, the LCBO. This, followed by Quebec’s SAQ, Co-op Wine & Spirits and major US retailers BevMo! and Ralph’s after its $1M friends and family round of funding.
