Hornitos expands tequila range with Cristalino
Beam Suntory’s brand Hornitos has expanded its tequila range by launching Hornitos Cristalino in the US market.
Hornitos Cristalino is a triple-distilled añejo tequila that is claimed to have been aged for nearly 12 months in traditional American white oak casks.
The company explained that Hornitos Cristalino contains blue agave tequila, which offers honey and floral scents with distinct vanilla and butterscotch flavours.
Beam Suntory tequilas vice-president Malini Patel said: "Hornitos Cristalino is a versatile spirit with a complexity of flavour that appeals to tequila connoisseurs and smoothness that makes it highly approachable for those looking for an introduction to the tequila.
"These unique qualities make Hornitos Cristalino ideal for everyday sipping, as well as for celebrating special occasions."
Hornitos Cristalino is an 80 proof product and is available in the US market for a suggested retail price (SRP) of $29.99 for a 750ml bottle.
For more than seven decades, Hornitos has offered a wide range of tequila products such as the whiskey barrel aged Hornitos Black Barrel Tequila.
In addition to Hornitos, Beam Suntory owns other brands such as Jim Beam, Knob Creek bourbon, Teacher's, Laphroaig, Canadian Club whisky, and Bowmore Scotch whiskies.
