Review of Azar Distilling by TexasRealFood
Husband and wife Trey and Kimberly Azar founded Azar Distilling. Azar Distilling started with Cinco Vodka in 2009 but the couple took a circuitous route to establishing the distillery. Trey Azar was in the oil and gas business when he decided to go back to his roots in liquor. His grandparents were the first Coors distributor in Texas, and he was a wine salesman and buyer in a former lifetime. Kimberly, meanwhile, worked in the cosmetics industry. While on a business trip, Trey realized there’s a niche for a premium American vodka. Trademarking the brand Cinco Five Star after the number of kids he and Kimberly have, the couple were soon on their way to producing their award-winning vodka. The vodka takes five times longer to make, results in a vodka five times better tasting, but without the cost.Cinco Vodka is now part of Azar Family Brands. The Azars expanded their product line to include Seersucker Gins in 2016.
