¡Ay Que Rico!
Whether you’re seeing and hearing the crisp, clean tequila fill your glass, smelling and tasting the natural sugars of cooked agave with a hint of caramel, vanilla, citrus and pepper, or feeling the natural viscosity of this magic elixir in your mouth, Don Rico
is a bold, new artisanal tequila that will... “stimulate your senses”.
Founder Rick "Rico" Olivo was introduced to the world of 100% de agave tequila in 2008 when he became general counsel of a national tequila brand. Rick grew a new appreciation and love for this sweet elixir from Mexico and set out to learn as much as possible in the years that followed.
His journey included many trips to Jalisco, hundreds of tequila tastings, and new friendships in the industry that guided him toward a new vision: to share his life-changing experience with the world. Together with family and friends, they developed a small batch, traditional tequila that symbolizes friendships and creates lasting memories.
