In addition to becoming the MLB team’s official tequila, Hornitos has become the naming rights partner of Wrigley Field’s left field group space.

Hornitos Tequila has partnered with the Chicago Cubs to become the team’s official tequila. The Left Field Well, now named Hornitos Hacienda, offers field-close standing room and limited seating for 15 to 50 Cubbies fans, giving occupants the best view in the Budweiser Bleachers. Hornitos Tequila is available to fans in that section and cocktails featuring the spirit will be offered in various sections of Wrigley Field.
“With new offerings to complement the bleacher experience that fans already know and love, we are thrilled to work with Hornitos Tequila to offer fans refreshing new ways to enjoy the game,” Colin Faulkner, vice president of sales and partnerships for the Chicago Cubs said in a statement. “This has already shaped up to be an exciting season of Cubs baseball, and the Hornitos Hacienda will continue to add to the fun.”
“Hornitos Tequila and the Chicago Cubs are the perfect recipe for fun at the ballpark this summer,” Claire Richards, senior director of tequilas at Beam Suntory said. “The timing could not be better for us to join forces and the Hornitos Hacienda will offer all-star fans a fun atmosphere, an amazing view to catch all the action and of course, a delicious drink to enjoy while watching the game.”
