NEW YORK (April 12, 2022) -- Slowly nurtured by the cyclical passing of warm daylight skies and cool luminous nights, Astral Tequila has arrived to brighten every moment. Astral, which means of the stars, is a new super-premium tequila crafted with 100% Blue Weber agave, nourished by the good energy that seeps from the sun and stars to infuse cocktails with bright bursts of citrus. Each time a bottle of Astral Tequila is opened, the vibrancy from the sun and stars is released anew.
Astral Tequila’s production process is steeped in tradition and features a unique 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 to make use of more of the agave plant. This technique embraces the true character and flavor of the agave to create a complex yet smooth tequila with notes of crisp citrus, clover honey, and bright white pepper, with underlying agave and an abundance of tropical fruit.
“We’re incredibly proud to introduce Astral Tequila. Our traditional and time intensive process creates a delicious, unique Tequila, made to be enjoyed with close friends for brighter cocktails and connections,” shares Christina Choi, Senior Vice President of Tequila, Diageo North America. “We also recognize that connections go far beyond drinks at the table, which is why we’re giving back to the community through our sustainability initiative where we upcycle our spent agave fibers to make bricks that will be used to create new places for people to gather in local communities in Mexico. That’s what Astral Tequila is all about, brightening connections.”
In celebration of the launch, Astral Tequila is introducing The House of Astral, a new-to-world celestial getaway that provides guests with an incredible experience filled with the vibrancy from the sun and stars, just like Astral Tequila. Located just outside of Joshua Tree National Park, lauded as one of the greatest dark sky locations in the country, The House of Astral is curated in partnership with acclaimed astrologer Aliza Kelly, the brand’s In-House ‘ASTRALogist’, to authentically create activities guided by the cosmos.
