A Tequila that cranks up on the flavors.

There was a time when you couldn’t get Código Tequila unless you were one of the Los Bajos' finest jimadors who were in on the closely-guarded secret. Either that, or if you were George Strait. The beloved American country singer, also known modestly as the “King of Country”, has been a huge fan of the liquid long before it was available to mere mortals. So much so that he even wrote a song about it.

Código 1530 Barrel Strength was matured for at least two years in the finest French white oak Cabernet casks you can find. One of the smoothest yet most complex Barrel Strength Tequilas out there, it clocks in at precisely 88 proof. The proof is higher than in their classic Añejo but it only brings bolder flavors without any throaty burn. On the contrary, the palate is actually soft with subtle caramel, vanilla, and dark chocolate dancing around. A rare expression.

Tequila labeled Gold (Oro) is your indicator (i.e., red flag) that you’re dealing with a mixto Tequila - unaged silver Tequila that has been colored and flavored with caramel to give the appearance of aged tequila.
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 Tequila quality and destroy the Agave flavor profile.
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 oxidation and evaporation diminish the quality of the Tequila and destroy the Agave flavor profile.
There are over 136 species of Agave. For Tequila to be officially called “Tequila,” it must be comprised of at least 51% of the Blue Weber Agave species.
The strongest Tequila available for sale clocks in at 75% ABV (150 proof). This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but drinking huge amounts of this spirit is likely te-quil-a.
Need a salt shaker and lime? Nah. The Mexicans take their Tequila neat and prefer to leave the lime and salt for their margaritas. Wouldn’t be a bad idea to follow suit.
