Since 2005, SilverCoin Tequila’s singular goal is handcrafting the highest quality, smoothest finishing tequilas in the world made with organically grown 100% Blue Weber Agave. This goal started with an idea to improve on something that already exists. As a cantina owner in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Lee Pak noticed all tequila finished the same; with a burn. There wasn’t a 100% Blue Agave tequila that was smooth on the finish and could be enjoyed neat. He set out to make a tequila that showcased the sweet, fruity flavors and aromas of the Agave plant and was distilled using the desired middle section, or hearts, to yield a premium hand crafted tequila with a unique viscosity. And so, SilverCoin began…we embrace the traditions of Tequila and incorporate our unique style in the process.
Expert guidance and generations of experience from our master distiller, in addition to diligent efforts and undying meticulousness from our entire team, brought us our biggest accolade to date – Double Medal Gold Medal from the Internationally renowned San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2014. Since then, we’ve won a Silver Medal in 2015, Triple Gold medal from Micro Liquor Spirit Award, Bronze for package design from Micro Liquor Awards, Double Gold from The Fifty Best and Silver medal from SIP Awards.

Where does the name Silvercoin come from?
Our super premium tequila is produced by the highly-respected Grupo Tequilera in Mexico, with the trademark Silvercoin. A ‘silver’ style margarita, also known as a ‘coin’ margarita, is made with silver tequila and Cointreau. It’s referred to by both names depending on the area, and is known differently in parts of the country. There are different styles with varying recipe proportions depending on if you like it tart, sweet or boozy. Our Silvercoin margarita recipe (based on the classic style) is prepared individually in a shaker with our silver tequila, freshly squeezed lime juice and Cointreau, served in a salt-rimmed glass.
