Los Arango Tequila is now out with its Blanco, Resposado and Añejo variants. This announcement coincides with Los Arango’s appointment of Infinium Spirits as its new U.S. importer.
Los Arango, named in honor of revolutionary José Doroteo Arango, better known as “Pancho Villa,” is made using 100% blue agave and specifically formulated yeast, the company says.
Los Arango Tequila is double column distilled. The Blanco has a clean and bright color with a soft, smooth palate, the company says. Los Arango Tequila Reposado aged for six months in American oak barrels. Los Arango Tequila Añejo is aged for thirteen months in American oak barrels burnt inside to give the tequila a smoky flavor; its flavors include vanilla, caramel and suede flavors.
“During the Mexican Revolution, an agave field worker was so grateful to Pancho Villa for fighting to protect his town against local aggressors that he dedicated his tequila, along with his artisanal recipe and handmade bottle, to Pancho Villa,” the company says. “Impressed by his crafted gift, Pancho Villa asked the master distiller to put his family name on the bottle. Today, the history lives on – within every bottle of Los Arango Tequila Blanco, Reposado and Añejo.”
Los Arango Blanco, Reposado and Añejo come in bottles adorned with a wooden cap as well as a leather label and necker that salute Los Arango’s heritage. Los Arango Tequila will be distributed nationally with a suggested retail price of $39.99 for Blanco, $44.99 for Reposado and $49.99 for Añejo, all per 750-ml bottle.
