If you were among the millions who watched the nerve-wracking NBA Finals Game 5, then you know it was filled with twists and turns. From the Bucks' 16 point deficit comeback to the Jrue Holiday-Giannis Antetokounmpo alley-oop that sealed the win for Milwaukee, it was one of the best NBA Finals games in recent memory.

A high-stakes game like the NBA Finals surely deserves the presence of greatness, like LeBron James. While we're not used to seeing "The King" sitting on the sidelines during the NBA Finals, he still grabbed people's attention when he was seen with his bottle of Lobos 1707 Tequila.

Curious about LeBron James' tequila company? The name "Lobos 1707" was derived from the Spanish word for "wolves" and aside from James, other NBA stars have also invested in the company like Anthony Davis and Draymond Green. Lobos 1707 uses a century-old distillation process through a unique barrel-aging process that combines techniques from both Mexico and Spain. The brand recently released its four flagship tequilas including the one James brought.

Made from 100% blue Weber agave, this fine drink was aged in American white oak barrels for roughly three years. It is aged through a solera method that allows it to have a lasting and flavorful taste while being undeniably smooth. The Tequila Extra Añejo is fragrant with rich agave, sherry and tobacco notes. These aromatic flavors are tied with a bit of sweetness creating harmony in its flavors.

The Cazadores Reposado Tequila is made in small batches.

It has warm notes that give out a hint of cinnamon and baked pear, giving it an oaky and earthy flavor.
