George Strait’s signature edition releases from Código 1530 Tequila is available to purchase in Australia thanks to groglords.com. Co-owned by the “King of Country”, the Código 1530 brand is renowned worldwide for delivering extremely high quality tequila.
Strait says, “If it’s not your favourite, you haven’t tried it.”
Strait’s 750ml Añejo Tequilla – Honky Tonk Time Machine: Encore Edition – is available for purchase at $249 AUD. The Añejo is a private recipe refined over many generations by an artisan distilling family in Amatitán. Aged for 18 months in the finest Napa Cabernet French White Oak barrels. Refined, elegant and expressive, it hints of fruit, mingled with oak, touches of vanilla and a bit of spice. The limited edition bottle celebrates the release of Strait’s 2019 album, Honky Tonk Time Machine.
Strait’s 750ml Extra-Añejo comes in a signed wooden box at $449. With only 36 bottles allocated for Australian fans, the extremely limited release is a true collectable. The signature edition bottles have a story all their own and are perfect for fans of the great man himself and of course, great tequila.
As the brand’s first-ever barrel select Origen, this special offering is bottled from six unique barrels aged for over six years, hand-selected by Strait while on location filming the music video for his hit song Código at their distillery in Amatitán, Mexico.
Strait is considered one of the most influential and popular recording artists of all time. In the 1980s, he was credited for pioneering the neotraditional country style, famed for his authentic cowboy image and roots-oriented sound at a time when the Nashville music industry was dominated by country pop crossover acts.
In more than 30 years of recording, Strait has garnered 61 number one songs on all country charts and has more number one hits than any other artist in a single genre. Strait has sold more than 68 million records in the United States alone, and his certifications from the RIAA include 13 multiplatinum, 33 platinum, and 38 gold albums.
Additionally, Strait was named CMA ‘Entertainer of the Year’ in 1989, 1990 and 2013, and ACM ‘Entertainer of the Year’ in 1990 and 2014. He has been nominated for more CMA and ACM awards and has more wins in both categories than any other artist.
Groglords.com is also responsible for the distribution of Travis Collins’ Ignition whiskey. Following the sell-out success of his Hometown Whiskey, Ignition is a limited edition, single barrel whiskey, produced using all-Australian grown grains and aged for 2 years in American White Oak barrels.
