To celebrate the spring equinox, Astral Tequila announced the release of two new offerings: Astral Tequila Reposado and Astral Tequila Añejo.
Aged for five months, three months longer than industry standard, Astral Tequila Reposado is subtly sweet yet rich tasting with notes of agave, caramel and oak, the company says.
Astral Tequila Añejo is aged for 12 months and radiates with warm notes of vanilla, oak and butterscotch, it notes.
“We’re thrilled to announce the addition of Astral Tequila Reposado and Añejo to our portfolio, providing more ways to brighten cocktails while honoring our traditional distilling process to create quality, smoother tasting tequilas,” said Christina Choi, senior vice president of tequila at Diageo North America, in a statement. “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.”
Both crafted with 100% blue weber agave, Astral Tequila Reposado and Añejo will be available in California, Florida, Texas, Illinois, New York, South Carolina, Michigan, Ohio and Virginia beginning April 1 wherever spirits are sold, as well as online at retailers such as Drizly.com and ReserveBar.com for a suggested retail price of $27.99 and $34.99 a bottle, respectively, the company says.
