pura vida tequila
kaitlyn skloss, co-founder
Pura Vida Tequila is a range of top-shelf triple-distilled 100 percent blue agave tequilas, distilled at the highest elevation distillery in the world. In the Mazamitla region of Mexico, the lush rain forest and cool mountain air is the perfect environment for the “pure life.” Pura Vida co-founder, Kaitlyn Skloss, left a lucrative law career in Boston to become a spirits entrepreneur setting off for a new life in Texas where she joined a quest to craft and share the ultimate tequila, “El Primero,” and bring the pure life home.
Kaitlyn’s mission is not only to create some of the finest quality spirits from the purest regions on earth, but also to show the next generation of businesswomen that enough hard work, dedication, and vision can tear down any barrier, no matter the industry. And just like the mariachi music that plays throughout her distillery, she also believes that the magic comes alive when a little dance is infused into every sip!
