You Knew Sunny Garcia Drinks Azuñia Tequila – Now it is Official

“Tequila has been part of the surf culture since the beginning,” explained surf legend Sunny Garcia, “and I am stoked to be part of the Azuñia Tequila family.” Garcia first met Azuñia owner Jim Riley at a LOORRS short course race at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, CA. The two hit it off immediately, so it is no surprise that Sunny Garcia is the newest brand ambassador for Azuñia Tequila. “Sunny represents the Azuñia lifestyle perfectly,” Riley noted. “He is a world class surfer, world traveler, and connoisseur of fine food and drink. We welcome him to the Azuñia family.”

San Clemente-based Azuñia Tequila is available in Platinum, Resposado, and Anejo. All Azuñia Tequila starts with only perfectly aged Weber Blue Agave, which grows for 8 to 10 years in our sun-drenched fields surrounding the small Mexican town of Amatitan. The fertile volcanic soil of this territory was naturally deposited over 200,000 years ago by the once active Tequila Volcano.

Sunny Garcia holds six Triple Crown of Surfing titles and has more World Qualification Series wins than anyone in history. He enjoys the dirt as much as the ocean and first raced short course in a Super Lite last season. Riley is an off-road racer as well, piloting the first V8-powered Trophy Lite truck to success in SCORE International and Best In The Desert races. “Sunny already came up with his own version of the margarita called the “Island Margarita” that we will be releasing shortly,” Riley revealed.
