Brescome Barton Adds Diageo’s Astral Tequila Blanco

By March 1, 2022Connecticut, Top News

Astral Tequila Blanco, made with 100% Blue Weber agave, is the newest tequila entry in Connecticut.

Astral Tequila Blanco joined the Brescome Barton spirits portfolio, available beginning in March throughout Connecticut. Made with 100% Blue Weber agave, Astral Tequila follows a unique recipe including the use of a tahona, an ancient milling process and inclusion of agave fibers, bagazo, during fermentation. The traditional, time-intensive process uses more of the agave plant, resulting in an agave-forward tequila. After distillation, the agave fibers are upcycled into adobe bricks and used to build homes for the local community where the tequila is made. Bottled at 40% ABV, Astral Tequila Blanco brightens any cocktail with bursts of citrus and notes of agave. Clean and light on the nose, the aroma offers crisp citrus with hints of preserved lemon and bright notes of agave. On the palate, the tequila is complex yet smooth with notes of crisp citrus, clover honey and bright white pepper with underlying agave and an abundance of tropical fruit, followed by a lingering silky-smooth finish.
