Luxury sipping Tequila Casa Del Sol has released its ultra-premium expression 11:11 Angel’s Reserve in the US.
Owned by Mexican-American actress Eva Longoria, Casa Del Sol’s first reserve bottle is inspired by Mayahuel, the ancient Aztec goddess of Tequila. It is said to honour the ‘magic and mysticism that surrounds 11:11’, a moment in time known as ‘the angel’s number’. Mariana Padilla, Casa Del Sol’s artesana Tequilera, commented: “We celebrate the intention of 11:11, a special time that happens twice a day and a signal that we are on the right path, together in a shared moment that invites us to savour and enjoy life, just like we hope Tequila appreciators around the country will savour the moment and enjoy this beautiful, soulful Tequila.” 11:11 Angel’s Reserve is a blend of Casa Del Sol extra añejo and añejo expressions that have been aged in French Limousin oak and XO Cognac barrels. The liquid offers tasting notes of honey, toffee, butterscotch and dried fruit that marry to create this soft, balanced spirit. “In crafting this very special expression of Tequila, the name pays homage to the term ‘Angel’s Share,’ where a certain amount of liquid evaporates in the barrel ageing process over time,” said Alejandra Pelayo, Casa Del Sol vice president of operations in Mexico. “It is said to be a gift ‘for the angels’ and we are so proud to offer 11:11 Angel’s Reserve across the US. “The innovation to blend and age our high quality Tequila in XO Cognac barrels is unique and very special – the result is unbelievably smooth and truly irresistible.” To mark the nationwide launch of 11:11 Angel’s Reserve, Casa Del Sol hosted a party at Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood, Los Angeles on 11 November. The celebration featured performances by Grammy award-winning singer Miguel, DJ Pedro, and international DJ, Honey. 11:11 Angel’s Reserve is available nationwide for US$199 at Total Wine & More, GoPuff, and other leading retailers throughout the US. In August, Casa Del Sol has appointed drinks industry veteran Scott Blazek to the role of chief growth officer.
