Suerte adds extra añejo Tequila to range

Small-batch Tequila maker Suerte has unveiled an eight-year-old extra añejo bottling called Lucky Lips.

Lucky Lips is the Tequila brand's latest release in its series of extra añejo expressions that have been aged for a year longer than its core bottlings. Laurence Spiewak, Suerte co-founder, said: “As an independent craft Tequila, we have the luxury to create Suerte in the manner that we believe makes the best product. “Our master distiller uses traditional methods, 100% blue weber agave and pure spring water from Atotonilco el Alto in the highlands of Jalisco. Lucky Lips is a patient reflection of the love and care that we put into our Tequila.” Lucky Lips has aged in charred American white oak barrels, said to have given the Tequila a "strong oak presence, hints of vanilla, cinnamon, honey, and date". Bottled at 40% abv, the extra añejo Tequila carries an RRP of US$109.99 and is available from select specialist retailers across 24 US states.
