Código 1530 Rosa
Código 1530 Rosa is a refined spirit with a natural colour as beautiful as its taste. Rosa rests just long enough in fine uncharred Cabernet barrels to enrich the natural agave juice, imparting a subtle pink hue and light violet floral finish without overpowering its delicate botanical balance. Opens with a silky agave and freshly cut grass character, finishing with the soft violet, dark cranberry and bright strawberry notes of Cabernet.
Made with 100% Agave with no chemicals, additives, sweeteners, flavouring, colouring or chemicals.
Código 1530 only uses the highest quality ingredients to produce a unique flavour and aroma. As a lowland Tequila, Código is located on some of the most fertile land in Mexico meaning the agave receives more rain as well as being grown in volcanic soils giving typical aromas and flavours of spice, earthy and herbal notes.
Every single agave is manually tested and only the ones with a 32-brix level or above will make it into a bottle of Código. The organic yeast is produced by a local family-run bakery. This results in a slow fermentation time of 12 days; however, the bread yeast provides a special nose and subtle richness to the tequila. All the water used to make Código 1530 comes from freshwater pools in “Los Bajos” that have been naturally filtered through the volcanic soils, making it one of the purest waters in the planet.
Rests for 1 month in uncharred Napa Valley Cabernet French White Oak wine barrels. The barrels are charred by hand, on-site at Código's private distillery in Amatitán.
Try this tequila in a rosa 75. In an ice-filled cocktail shaker, pour a measure and a half of Código 1530 Rosa, 10ml of lemon juice and sugar syrup to taste. Shake well and strain into a cocktail glass before topping up with a splash of rosé wine.
