Codigo 1530 George Strait Limited Edition Rosa Reposado Tequila
40% ABV, 750 ml, George Strait Limited Edition
Codigo 1530 is private recipe tequila that has been contracted by a family in Los Cabos for almost a decade, before finally becoming a commercial product in the U.S.
Made at NOM 1500 by Tequileria las Juntas, the product was nameless for many years, existing solely as the house brand for family members and friends. Now available for the first time, Codigo brings an exciting and diverse line up of unique tequilas to a market that's long been saturated by similar products. The Codigo rosa is an expressive and flavorful tequila just like the blanco that owes its clean agave flavor to a rather ineffective distillation process, one that uses traditional methods to mash and ferment. The tinge of red fruit from the wine influence is just barely noticeable, but it highlights the agave. The tequila is still clean and fresh despite the extra weight and tanginess. It's a unique twist on a blanco that actually true tequila fans will recognize as higher end because of the extra concentration. This is far from a diffused and airbrushed commercial tequila. It's the real deal.
