Started by Carlos Soto and Michael Arbanas and in the market by 2017, the idea of Nosotros was catalyzed by a college assignment, born from a passion for tequila. The duos first expression, an unaged Blanco, put them on the map when it ultimately yielded “Best Tequila” at the world’s most respected spirits competition amongst many of the industry’s well-known tequila brands.
Nosotros, a small-batch agave spirits brand that marries the Pura Vida lifestyle of Costa Rica with the rebel spirit of Mexico, is blended under the California sun. The name “Nosotros” (us/we in English) is derived from the experience of enjoying the better things in life with family, friends, and loved ones.
This award-winning tequila is the result of blending two agave regions to create a taste profile that is both complex and delicious.
Nosotros products include Blanco, Reposado, Mezcal, Madera and Tesla Anejo.
