Fine wine and spirits company Biggar and Leith today announced the launch of a new brand, The Butterfly Cannon Tequila, in the UK .
Taking its name from the migration of butterflies from the US to Mexico, the super premium tequila is 100% Agave and is produced in renowned Mexican distillery, Destiladora del Valle de Tequila.
The Butterfly Cannon Tequila range comes in three expressions: Rosa, Silver Cristalino and Blue. Launching in the UK this month, the drink is packaged in distinctive 50cl and 5cl bottles with a real cork on the larger size. The tequila is designed to be mixed in a range of cocktails as well as sipped or mixed with tonic or soda.
The Butterfly Cannon expressions are made from 7-8 year old agave harvested by hand and baked in traditional steam ovens before being mashed, fermented and distilled.
“We created The Butterfly Cannon Tequila to make you rethink the tequila category, making it approachable Tequila designed for mixability,” Elwyn Gladstone of Biggar and Leith said.
“We have plans to help preserve the natural wonder of the butterfly migration and rather than creating another celebrity brand, we wanted to produce an authentic tequila. We will be making contributions to special projects that aim to preserve the natural habitat of butterflies in Mexico, for generations to come.”
RRP: £33 for a 50cl bottle ABV: 40%. The Biggar and Leith portfolio is available in the UK from Craftwork
