A. Hardy USA, Ltd., a Des Plaines, Illinois-based national liquor and wine importer and national sales and marketing agency,has announced the availability of its new Tequila 1519. A. Hardy USA president Mark Levinson signed an exclusive agreement with Agave Conquista to represent Tequila 1519 to the U.S. market.
According to Levinson, “We are continuing to pursue high quality organic spirits to help satisfy increasing consumer demand and expanding markets. By adding Tequila 1519 to our portfolio, we are filling a specific niche. We expect this tequila to have a significant impact in the super premium segment of the American tequila market because it is quality focused and the market is not crowded with similar products.”
Manufactured in Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico, Tequila 1519 is made from 100 percent Agave Tequila plants. And, Tequila 1519 is both certified organic and certified kosher which assures its quality. Tequila 1519’s name is intended as a tribute to the first Andalusian steed horses that were introduced into Mexico in the year 1519. These horses became the seed stock for the internationally renowned Azteca Stallions lineage, now part of Mexico’s pride and history.
Tequila 1519 Blanco has a strong yet velvety flavor that is ideal to drink straight with a pinch of salt and zest of lime. It can be easily mixed without losing its distinctive agave flavor. Tequila 1519 Reposado is aged for sixty days in oak barrels where it slowly transforms into a rich golden color with a hint of wooden notes. It may be enjoyed straight or mixed in cocktails. Tequila 1519 Anejo is aged for a minimum of one year and is the most subtle of the three 1519 varieties. The specific distillation process combined with slow aging in oak wood barrels results in a distinct aroma with delicate wooden notes.
Tequila 1519 is 40 percent alcohol by volume and 80 proof. All three varieties are packaged in 750 ml bottles. For more information about Tequila 1519 write to A.
