New Tequila Line Joins MD&S Distributors

By August 2, 2021Connecticut, Top News

Kostiv Tequila Blanco, Double Gold Medal Winner at the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and Gold Medal Winner at the 2020 Global Spirits Awards; Kostiv Tequila Reposado, Platinum Medal Winner at the 2020 Global Spirits Awards and 94-point rating from Wine Enthusiast magazine; and Kostiv Tequila Añejo, Gold Medal Winner at the 2020 Global Spirits Awards.

MD&S Distributors launched Tequila Kostiv, an award-winning artisan tequila line new to Connecticut. Made in the heartland of Amatitán, Jalisco, Mexico, each expression follows a meticulous process that guarantees its purity and unique taste. The 100% Weber blue agave is distilled and aged in oak barrels following the traditional recipe inherited from the first tequila masters. Petro Kostiv, Co-founder of the brand, had been a friend of Master Distiller Saul Perez Ocampo from NOM 1500 for more than a decade. After receiving a bottle of tequila as a gift, Kostiv followed a newfound passion to begin a partnership in Jalisco with Ocampo, creating tequila made with quality and handcrafted by those in the community. Kostiv Tequila Blanco, twice-distilled, unaged and fermented via copper pot; Kostiv Tequila Reposado, resting in American oak barrels and then aged six months in hand-charred French cabernet sauvignon barrels; and Kostiv Tequila Añejo, aged 18 months in ex-charred French cabernet sauvignon white oak barrels, each are rooted in the company’s mission to represent Mexican culture, flavors and textures.
