901 Tequila is a tasty tequila from pop star Justin Timberlake. Made from 100% blue agave which is at least seven years old, 901 uses a short fermentation time to promote a stronger agave character in their tequila. The signature triple distillation process of one column distillation and two pot distillations creates a smooth, consistent profile which is a pleasure to drink. You can purchase 901 from our online shop now.
901 Tequila is so smooth that it's best enjoyed when drunk straight. The unique agave flavours of the tequila can shine through, and there's none of the harsh alcohol burn that other tequilas can have. Produced by the legendary Case Sauza distillery, 901 is a treat for those who love high-quality sipping tequilas.
Of course, you can also enjoy 901 in cocktails, where its smooth agave flavours will enhance any mixed drink. Try a sweet Mai Tequila (that's 2 parts 901 Tequila, 1 part Créme De Almond Liqueur, a generous squeeze of lime juice, and a dash of orange bitters) or a refreshing Che Sauza 901 (that's 2 parts 901 Tequila, 2 parts simple syrup, 1 part fresh lime juice, 3 mint sprigs, ½ lime, and a splash of soda water). Or for the daring there's the distinctive Last Night (2 parts 901 Tequila, 1 part Maraschino Liquor, 1 part Green Chartreuse Liqueur, and 1 part lime juice) or the zingy Sweet Señorita (2 parts 901 Tequila, 1 part lemon juice, ½ part agave syrup, 5 raspberries, 5 basil leaves, a splash of club soda, and a drop of balsamic vinegar).
901 Tequila is fresh and easy to drink
901 Tequila is rich and warm, with hints of citrus and pine. It has a little prickle of agave spiciness but the triple distillation process means that this tequila is incredibly smooth. This is a silver tequila, meaning that it's unaged, and so it has a lively, fresh character. It's enjoyed by critics as well as fans, and has acquired a score of 90 points (Excellent / Highly Recommended) on tequila.net.
Justin Timberlake is joint owner of 901 Tequila
Pop star Justin Timberlake is a big fan of tequila and wanted to bring to market a tequila which he loved to drink. Named after the postal code of his home of Memphis, Tennessee, 901 has been produced since 2009 and has become a common sight in high-end bars and clubs. The bottle is visually distinctive, with a stylish shape which is hexagon at the front and rounded at the back, and is emblazoned with the Sauza logo of a rooster.
The Sauza company has been making tequila in Jalisco, Mexico, since 1873 when it was founded by Don Cenobio Sauza. He was the first person to use the name "tequila" for the spirit distilled from blue agave, and was also the first person to export the spirit to the United States. Sauza, with their reputation for making some of the best tequilas in the world, made the ideal partner for Justin Timberlake when he was looking for a company to produce his premium tequila.
