NBA Hall of Famer and former sports broadcaster, Bill Walton  has become an equity partner with Azuñia Tequila, an ultra-premium tequila brand imported by Intersect Beverage of Newport Beach, California. Azuñia Tequila is known for its superior taste and unique flavor and Tequila coinsures credit the location of the distillation for this high quality.
Part of the success of the brand comes from the location of its production. In the heart of Jalisco, Mexico, is the world’s best climate for growing Weber Blue Agave, the principal ingredient in Azuñia Tequila. It is here, in the heart of the Tequila Valley, that Azuñia Tequila is created.
The Zuñiga family is one of the oldest agave growing families in Mexico and has generations of expertise in producing tequila. Azuñia Tequila is made from Weber Blue Agave, which grows for 8 to 10 years in sun-drenched fields surrounding the small town of Amatitan. Each agave plant receives rich nutrients from the fertile volcanic earth and a steady diet of perfect seasonal weather.
Bill Walton’s well-documented life has been filled with daunting challenges and great success. He knows the value of hard work, patience and a commitment to excellence, the very qualities that are adhered to by the experienced Jimadors who produce Azuñia Tequila.
"We are thrilled to have a first class partner like Bill Walton that understands persistence, discipline, structure, and some good luck," commented CEO, Jim Riley.
