Justin Timberlake recently introduced 901 Reposado and 901 Añejo – two additions to the 901 Tequila brand he co-founded in 2009. The two new expressions join 901 Silver to round out the brand’s lineup.
Reposado (“rested”) and Añejo (“aged”) are aged expressions.
Reposado is made from 100% Blue Weber agave and triple distilled for a smooth, clean product. It is produced near Guadalajara, Jalisco, in the heart of tequila country The Reposado tequila is aged in American new oak barrels for at least 8 months and has hints of vanilla. Añejo ages in the barrels for at least 18 months, and has notes of pepper, nuts, coffee, and roasted oak. The two tequilas retail for $45 and $50.
Both tequilas will be released nationwide this fall.
