Sotheby’s Reside Magazine: ACTOR JUSTIN HARTLEY PLAYS AN ENTREPRENEURIAL ROLE WITH REVEL AVILA
9/16/21 – Happy Mexican Independence! In coming up with this year’s celebratory cocktail, we challenged our mixology team with a specific set of rules: 1) The drink must display all three colors of the Mexican flag, and 2) It must include at least one ingredient commonly grown in Morelos.
Wow, did this one not disappoint. A beautiful mix of coconut, cinnamon and ripe avocado (grown widely in Morelos). It’s an absolute must try.
The name of the drink “Cry of Dolores” is an ode to the call of arms given by Roman Catholic priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla in Dolores, Mexico on 16 September 1810 while ringing the church bell and essentially triggered the Mexican War of Independence.
1/19/21 – Just as Avila is the spirit of Morelos, The Cuernavaca is its’ signature cocktail, named after the state’s capital. Created by Morelos native (and owner of Cuernavaca cocktail bar Pichirilo) Christian Rubio, this drink aims to be a classic as popular as the Margarita or the Paloma, but taste twice as good. Simple and beautifully fresh, The Cuernevaca is packed full of flavor but still lets the Avila be the star of the show.
Every spirit has its signature cocktail. The Margarita is to tequila, as the Mojito is to rum, and the Moscow Mule is to vodka. These iconic drinks all have their origins and eventually became the cocktails we all love and sip on today. That being said, we wanted Avila to have a signature cocktail of its own, one crafted in…

He came up with this coconut-based cocktail that makes you instantly feel like you’re on vacation. It’s tropical but still spirit-forward; light but still packs a punch; sweet but dry; refreshing but… well, you get the point. This one’s a winner, and super easy to make at home. Enjoy!
In the alcohol industry, there are only a handful of spirits and wines protected by law, which is known as a Denomination of Origin. Internationally recognized, these Denominations of Origin zero in on the geography of where a product is made. For example, Avila’s cousin, tequila, is protected by its own Denomination of Origin which is defined by a very…
“Tequila and mezcal are some of the hottest spirits around right now. SB finds out if the likes of sotol, raicilla, bacanora and avila could follow in their wake and become equally appealing to drinkers.” https://www.thespiritsbusiness.com/2020/10/the-alternative-agave-spirits-vying-for-consumer-attention/
So excited that Shalwah Evans from Essence.com decided to include Revel Avila in her special day. She and her wedding guests had only great things to say about it, “A party ain’t a party if you don’t have tequila. But you can’t call Revel’s triple distilled 100 percent pure agave tequila. It’s more like magic in a bottle.” https://www.essence.com/lifestyle/food-drinks/black-owned-spirits-brands-pandemic-wedding/
