George Strait Headed to Houston to Celebrate the Start of His New Tequila Line

By  | 

On their Facebook page, Código 1530 describes itself as, “A private tequila honoring generations of refinement from the finest jimadors and most respected families of Mexico.” But many people will remember the company with its other claim to fame, Código 1530 is George Strait’s line of tequilas.

ABC 13 reports that on Monday night, Houstonians were formally introduced to “collection that includes Blanco, Rosa, Reposado, Anejo and Origen” at a party at Perry’s Steakhouse and Grille. Strait was joined by his wife of 45 years, Norma, at the event. An ABC 13 reporter couldn’t help but ask him if he would consider performing at RodeoHouston again, and the singer reportedly said, “Never say never.”

When it comes to the tequila itself, SA Flavor writes that it’s rather tasty either served straight up or on the rocks. The drink comes from the best agave plants that grow in the volcanic soil of the Lowlands region. Their aged tequilas are aged in “French Oak wine barrels out of Napa Valley.”

“Overall I enjoyed the Reposado for its punch and the Origen for its refinement as the best two tequilas sampled that evening,” the writer for SA Flavor concluded. You can find locations that sell Código 1530 on their official website here.
