Mexican Tequila brand Astral has announced the release of two new offerings: Astral Tequila Reposado and Astral Tequila Añejo.
Rounding out the brand’s super-premium collection, the two expressions are crafted with 100% Blue Weber agave and aged to perfection. According to the brand, the expressions are infused with the sun’s and stars’ harmonious energy.
“We’re thrilled to announce the addition of Astral Tequila Reposado and Añejo to our portfolio, providing more ways to brighten cocktails while honouring our traditional distilling process to create quality, smoother-tasting tequilas,” said Christina Choi, Senior Vice President of Tequila, Diageo North America.
“These new variants also support our mission to uplift communities in Jalisco, Mexico, by creating more bricks through our sustainability initiative, the Adobe Brick Project,” Choi continued.
Subtly sweet yet rich-tasting with notes of agave, caramel and oak, Astral Tequila Reposado is aged for five months, three months longer than the industry standard and marries the warmth of the tequila with flavours of bursting citrus.
Astral Tequila Añejo is aged twelve months. It radiates with warm notes of vanilla, oak and butterscotch, making the variant perfect for enjoying with friends neat, on the rocks or as the leading spirit to provide a delicious twist on classics such as an Old Fashioned.
