Pernod Ricard has unveiled new packaging for its Olmeca Altos Tequila brand ahead of its US nation-wide release later this month.

The new packaging includes an easy-pour bottle and a wooden cap designed to appeal to bartenders and encourage them to promote it on-premise, the group said today (3 September). “Educating bartenders about Tequila has been key to our strategy for Altos as we introduced the brand to key markets over the last couple of years,” said international VP for Olmeca Olivier Fages.

“Bartenders around the world are hungrier than ever right now for innovation.”

Last year, Olmeca Altos was launched in test cities including Chicago and Denver. It was first launched in selected markets worldwide in 2009 and last year a UK ambassador for the brand was appointed.

Pernod plans to release the new packaging across the US this month before being rolled out into global markets over the next 12 months.
