I know by now all of my Lifers have seen the newest installment of Living The Life. I might have taken the drinking a little too far that night but in the spirit of Oceans I present to you Antiguo Tequila…
Originally developed in 1924 and served exclusively to family and friends of the manor at Mexico’s Hacienda del Refugio, Antiguo tequila has never been sold in the U.S. – until now.
The super-premium brand was launched commercially in Mexico in 1995 to commemorate Casa Herradura’s 125th anniversary (est. 1870) of producing the world’s finest tequila, using the original formula that was kept a secret for almost a century.
Antiguo is crafted using only 100% pure agave to be a lighter bodied, exceptionally smooth and mellow spirit. Distilled at 80 proof, it has a suggested 750ml retail price of $24.99 to $29.99 here depending on the expression: Blanco, Reposado and Añejo, in handsome vintage-inspired bottles with Herradura’s signature horseshoe motif.
