Astral Tequila Añejo aged for twelve months. It has notes of vanilla, oak and butterscotch, according to the company.

“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,” says Christina Choi, Senior Vice President of Tequila, Diageo North America. “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.”

Distilled in Jalisco, Mexico, the new iterations aged in single-use American Oak bourbon barrels. They follow the brand’s traditional production processes, including a milling process using the tahona, a stone wheel which crushes the juices from the agave fibers. Those crushed fibers, or bagazo, are then used in the fermentation process.

Astral Tequila Reposado and Añejo will be available in CA, FL, TX, IL, NY, SC, MI, OH and VA beginning April 1, as well as online at retailers such as Drizly.com and ReserveBar.com for a suggested retail price of $27.99 and $34.99 respectively.
