In 2007—when Colangelo & Partners launched Tequila Partida in the trade and media—super premium Tequila was not a well-known spirit. As the category grew, more brands came on the market with celebrity endorsements. Tequila Partida had to stand on category education and quality alone.
Colangelo & Partners developed and executed a strategic integrated communications plan including media relations, social media, trade marketing, events and web marketing.
Highlights included: a robust media relations program that garnered unprecedented numbers in imperssions annually, a dynamic social media presence, newsletters and Tequila Appreciation Day for trade, cocktail contest for bartenders, a compelling video series called “Tequila Confessions,” large-scale event participation at South Beach Food & Wine, Tales of the Cocktail, New York Wine & Food and Bon Appetit’s Chicago Gourmet. In addition, Colangelo & Partners built the initial brand website and executed design, held press trips and increased traffic to all online channels throughout a near-decade with Tequila Partida.
Successfully positioned Partida as a leading producer of ultra-premium Tequila with important trade and bartender audiences.

Grew the social media fan base to nearly 40,000 fans in less than 9 months
