Legendary Brand Launches Tequila Finished In Duke Grand Cru French Oak Wine Barrels; Benefiting The John Wayne Cancer Foundation
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Oct. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Duke Spirits is thrilled to announce the introduction of Duke Grand Cru Tequila, three new ultra-premium single estate tequilas from the highlands of Jalisco. The limited-edition collection was finished in the same French oak wine barrels that were used to finish Duke Grand Cru Whiskeys creating a truly unique and exquisite flavor profile unlike any other tequila.
Duke Grand Cru Founders Reserve Reposado, Extra Añejo, and a six year old Commemorative Extra Añejo Limited Edition were created to commemorate and honor John Wayne's love for Mexico, his connection to the land and his pursuit of the perfect tequila. Every Duke Grand Cru Tequila bottle purchased will support the John Wayne Cancer Foundation which funds novel and innovative program that improve cancer patient's outcomes and saves lives through research, education, awareness and support. The launch will focus on a select number of markets including Arizona, California, Florida, and Texas and will be available nationally through online retailers.
"We are excited to share Duke Tequila with consumers throughout the United States," said Chris Radomski, Founder of Duke Spirits. "The unique finishing process on the tequila creates a remarkable flavor and balance. It is an honor to bring this to life and support a cause that meant so much to John Wayne."
The tequila is produced from hand-selected pinas grown on single estates at a distillery founded in 1885 in Jalisco. Duke Grand Cru Tequila is distilled by hand, the old-fashioned way, in small copper pot stills from the purest agave grown in the rich, red soils in the highlands of Los Altos. It is carefully aged, then finished in the finest French oak wine barrels from Napa, which have also been graced by Duke Grand Cru Bourbon from Kentucky.
Duke Tequila is presented at 80 proof with suggested retail prices ranging from $64-$250 for a 750ml bottle. To purchase visit www.dukespirits.com
