Tequila brand Código 1530 is releasing the second edition of Código 1530 Rare Hare Añejo Conejo in conjunction with the iconic lifestyle brand, Playboy.
As part of a collaboration with Rare Hare, the expression embodies the elegance and sophistication of both Código 1530 and Playboy. Only 1,953 bottles will be produced as a tribute to the first issue of Playboy magazine, which was published in 1953.
“The first collaboration between Código 1530 and Playboy was so well-received that we wanted to create another collaboration,” said Ron Snyder, CEO of Código 1530. “The second edition of Rare Hare Añejo Conejo features double-barrel finishing, using both Cognac casks and French white oak cabernet wine barrels. The Cognac finish adds balance and depth with hints of cumin and dried plum to the Añejo profile.”
First aged in French White Oak Cabernet wine barrels for 18 months, Rare Hare Añejo Conejo is then finished in French Cognac casks for an additional six months.
“After the success of our first Rare Hare Añejo Conejo offering, we are excited to release our second edition of this very special tequila,” said Jared Dougherty, Playboy President of Strategic Partnerships. “This edition of Rare Hare Añejo Conejo comes on the heels of additional ultra-premium product launches from Rare Hare and Playboy Spirits.”
Bottled at 44% ABV, Rare Hare Añejo Conejo has tasting notes of woody caramel and French vanilla, as well as smooth lingering flavours of light floral honey, roasted pecans, and stone fruit notes.
Each black crystal bottle of Rare Hare Añejo Conejo is individually numbered and has an etched logo and label. The bottle is presented in an antiqued wooden box handcrafted in Mexico, and includes two stemmed Riedel tequila-tasting glasses.
