Astral is made with good energy. It beams down from the sun and stars, seeps gently into the blue Weber agave, and transforms into a bright burst of citrus flavor.
Astral Blanco is complex yet smooth, with notes of crisp citrus, clover honey, and bright white pepper, with underlying agave and an abundance of tropical fruit. Every time you open a bottle of Astral tequila, that vibrancy from the sun and stars is released anew. It flows out into a salt-rimmed rocks glass, into the spaces between us, and brightens every moment.
