John Potts, the former vice president of sales for Deep Eddy vodka, will join the Qui Tequila team as an advisor and investor. Potts helped drive Deep Eddy sales from its inception in 2010 to 500,000 cases in 2015. “I have been watching the incredible momentum that the Qui Tequila team has created in my own backyard. Here in Texas they’ve become one of the top selling ultra-premium tequilas in less than 18 months since introducing Qui to this market – a testament to the caliber brand and liquid the team has created,” Potts said. Qui Tequila is platinum extra añejo tequila that was founded in 2013 by entrepreneurs Medhat Ibrahim, Mike Keriakos and Pete Girgis.
