A masterful Tequila designed by a master palate with a full-bodied profile.

After founding Sombra Mezcal, world-renowned master sommelier Richard Betts turned his attention to the king of Mexican Spirits, Tequila. Astral Tequila is a throwback to more traditional methods of Tequila production. Davos Brands has become the caretaker of the brand and reputation, adding it to their portfolio along with Sombra a few years ago.

Astral Tequila Blanco is made from 100% organic Weber blue agave from a single mountain estate in the Mexican Highlands. The agave piñas are slow-roasted in brick ovens, crushed, and fermented using organic wild yeast. Importantly, during the crushing the pulp is left in the juice instead of filtering it out. This lets the agave character build in the Spirit. And its bottled at a tidy 46% ABV making it a solid sipper and cocktail-worthy. And the judges agree, awarding it a Double Gold Medal at the 2016 San Fransisco World Spirits Competition and it has been recognized by several publications as one of the best Tequilas in the world.


Smartass Corner:
Richard Betts has quite the palate. He was only the ninth person ever to pass the Court of Master Sommeliers masters examination on the first attempt. Since then he has founded Wineries, written books, and launched multiple Spirits brands.

Corner
Tequila goes bad with time. Once you open a bottle of Tequila, you better be in the mood to drink it. Generally, you have one to two months before oxidization and evaporation diminish the quality of the Tequila and destroys the Agave flavor profile.
