ABOUT Siembra Azul & owner David Suro
Siembra Azul (Blue Harvest) is a small-batch, artisanally crafted, premium tequila made from 100% of the finest blue agave, grown and produced in the town of Aran in the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. A double distilled spirit of unparalleled quality, Siembra Azul is the meticulous result of an extremely well-monitored production process supervised by a team of expert tequila connoisseurs. Leading this team is founder David Suro-Piñera, whose lifelong quest for the highest quality tequila propelled him to create the brand.
Siembra Azul’s trademark, “The Future of Tradition,” is Suro-Piñera’s mission: he travels throughout the U.S. conducting educational seminars on the history, traditions, terroir distinctions and varying flavor profiles of tequila for consumers, the spirits trade, and the hospitality industry. His intent is to educate the U.S marketplace about tequila and its wonderful attributes as one of the most complex spirits in the world. David is the founder of the Tequila Interchange Project.
