Budding mixologists, the wait is over – the new Sierra Antiguo range has launched in Australia, bringing ultra premium 100% Agave Tequila that’s inspiring and indulgent. Made from blue weber agaves, the pure and fruity taste of Sierra Antiguo makes it the perfect mix for Margaritas, the most famous tequila cocktail.

Spreading the word as authentic Tequila for creative hours, Sierra Antiguo’s versatile and complex flavours make it the perfect tequila range for experimenting with fun and flavour, elevating any freshly mixed cocktail.

The exotic Sierra Antiguo range is made from only the best ingredients, and is ideal for indulging with friends. The range comprises two products – the velvety smooth Sierra Antiguo Plata (RRP $82) is a tequila with a fresh smell, a fruity sweetness, citrus and clear agave notes rounded off by a soft taste. For the more full-bodied tequila fans, Sierra Antiguo Añejo (RRP $82) has a warm, deep golden colour characterised by its aromatic, full-bodied yet mild and fine taste with a flavour bouquet of vanilla, oranges, cloves and pepper with a fruity finish.

Mario Kappes, Global Advocacy & Education Manager for Sierra Tequila, says, “We’re thrilled to expand the SIERRA brand into the Australian market with the launch of Sierra Antiguo, our 100% Agave range. Our biggest intention with our brand is to be able to provide all our tequila lovers with a 100% agave tequila with the best mixability for margaritas and other tequila drinks. 100% agave, 100% creatividad!  Many Australians have been fans of Sierra Silver Tequila for a long time, and now we’re upping the game with a more premium offering. We believe that the better the ingredients, the greater the indulgence – this range brings just that.”

Renowned for its skill of craftsmanship and innovation Sierra Antiguo is a 100% authentic agave experience, bringing with it the unique character of traditional Mexico. Produced by a family-run distillery in Destilerías Sierra Unidas in the highlands of Guadalajara, the distillery’s sunny, low-rainfall climate, means that the agaves grown for Sierra Antiguo are free of artificial fertilisers and industrial irrigation.

Using traditional distilling methods passed down from generations of master distillers, the agaves are harvested exclusively by the Jimadores by hand into copper pot stills. The result is a 100% Agave Tequila with a complex flavour profile, making it perfect for cocktails like the Margarita,  where agave notes stand out.

Sierra Antiguo is now available in leading independent retailers and will be available in Dan Murphy’s from July in 70 selected stores. To find out more visit www.sierratequila.com/en/sierraantiguo.
