Special edition double barrel Rosa-Reposado available now
Código 1530 has released a Special Edition Double Barrel: Rosa-Reposado Tequila with George Strait. The brand is the first to produce Tequila Rosa-Blanco, a naturally pink hued tequila derived from resting their pure Blanco expression in the finest French white oak Napa Valley Cabernet wine barrels for one month.
Strait is an active partner in Código 1530 due to his love of the finest tequila. He has remained intertwined because the product is just that good – so good that he even wrote a song about it. Strait sought to create another expression that was more widely accessible for his fans to taste, try, and love.
“I was curious to further age our popular Tequila Rosa-Blanco until it graduated into the Reposado category, without charring the barrels first as we normally would for our Reposado. The lack of charred barrel influence allows the agave to shine through. To complete this expression, it is finished in Spanish Sherry casks to add an unmatched sweetness. The flavor was too unique to not bottle it. If you enjoy our Tequila Rosa-Blanco, you will love this Rosa-Reposado, as it’s finish is even deeper and richer,” Strait shares.
Tasting notes include cooked agave, cherry, and lively citrus that is sure to please all palates. The bottles feature a custom, special edition print with George Strait’s famous silhouette, guitar, and signature. Each bottle is carefully hand filled and packaged in a 750 ml bottle of Mexican, bubbled glass with an artfully raised symbolic Jerusalem Cross from the Jalisco region on its shoulder and branded in its base.
The George Strait Special Edition Rosa-Reposado Tequila retails between $75-80 on the Código 1530 website and at licensed retail outlets.
