Chamucos Tequila Introduces Two New Ultra-Premium Expressions
Leading wine & spirits importer Palm Bay International is pleased to announce the addition of Extra Añejo & "Diablo Blanco" to the current Chamucos Tequila portfolio, a collection of signature expressions that includes Blanco, Reposado and Añejo.
Chamucos "Diablo Blanco", bottled at 110 proof, is a tequila untamed. Made from 100% Los Altos blue agave, "Diablo Blanco" brings back the lost tradition of drawing tequila straight from the still. The blue agave is slow cooked in masonry ovens and then fermented for up to nine days using a natural proprietary yeast derived from the agave. After fermentation, it is slow distilled in specially designed, small alambique stills, then rests in stainless steel tanks for four months, followed by a very light filtration to achieve an abundance of agave aroma and flavor in the bottle. Chamucos "Diablo Blanco" delivers intense complexity with rich nuances of vanilla, cinnamon, citrus and fennel, with an ultra-smooth finish, ideal for enjoying neat or in a premium cocktail; less is more with this 110 proof spirit.
Chamucos Extra Añejo is a masterful blend of a 3-year-old tequila and a 4-year-old tequila, married with a gorgeous 5-year-old tequila, all made from 100% Los Altos blue agave and bottled at cask strength. This expression delivers a delicate balance of toasted oak, sweet vanilla and butterscotch, with fruit and spice shaping its refined character and finish. Chamucos Extra Añejo should be enjoyed slowly for a memorable and incredible experience.
Chamucos "Diablo Blanco" is rolling out nationwide at a suggested retail price of $59.99 (750 ml).
Chamucos "Extra Añejo" will be available nationwide at a suggested retail price of $199.00 (750 ml).
Chamucos Tequila was originally created in 1992 by two friends; the Oscar nominated Mexican film director, Antonio Urrutia, and his close friend, a hand-blown glass bottle artist/ producer, Cesar Hernandez. Their friend, U.S. Importer, Mark Howard, saw a bottle while visiting Cesar's glass factory and convinced them to launch a brand together. Inspired by frequent sightings of a dark shadowy frightening creature in the barrel cellar, the name "Chamucos" was born. Together, the three refined the bottle design and label, along with the flavor profile and recipe led by renowned Master Distiller, Ing. Hector Davalos. In 1994, Chamucos Tequila first launched in both Mexico and in the U.S. While the brand originally only produced and bottled Reposado, a Blanco was added in 2009 and Añejo in 2010. Today, Chamucos Tequila is sold in eight countries and is leading in sales in the U.S. followed by Mexico. For more visit: http://www.tequilachamucos.com.
