Código 1530 and King George are at it again.
Announced today, the King’s tequila company has unveiled a special edition, double barrel Rosa-Reposado.
The new project has been aged in un-charred French Oak wine barrels for three months, and finished in Spanish Sherry casks.
Needless to say, the country music legend is ecstatic for the release:
“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.”
Co-founder and Executive Chairman Ron Snyder also weighed in on the release:
“Because Código 1530 still uses authentic, traditional practices to create our award-winning tequilas by aging in small batched barrels, we are able to play around with techniques and try new things.
To avoid turning our naturally light pink tequila brown from aging too long in the French Oak wine barrels, we had to experiment until the perfect timing and color was attained.
Rested at approximately 3 months, then finished in Spanish Sherry casks, the new Rosa-Reposado expression was born, flaunting a unique color that is a slight golden brown with a hint of rosé pink.”
The new tequila will be presented in a 750mL glass bottle, and will range from $74.99 to $79.99 for a bottle.
