What’s In A Name

Tromba gets its name from the intense rainstorms of the Jalisco highlands that nourish its famed agave plants. It also represents an energy and rejuvenation that fuels the passion and purpose of its founders.


It was a chance meeting in Mexico that brought three young men together. Over nights spent sipping tequila, a deep friendship was formed, along with a new found respect and appreciation for tequila. A pact was made to live lives pursuing their passions, doing the unexpected and rejecting the status quo. They found kindred spirits in Marco Cedano and son Rodrigo. And the rest as they say is history.


In 2005 Eric Brass, Nick Reid and James Sherry launched Tequila Tromba with Marco and Rodrigo Cedano. Like his own son, these young men embodied an energetic passion and the independent spirit not to be limited by rules and somebody else’s rules of doing things. They were going to disrupt the tequila world by bringing modern craft tequila to the world.


We celebrate others who take life by storm, finding their passion to follow their own independent path.
Our series interviews entrepreneurs, artists and an eclectic mix of people that inspire us.
