BrewDog Distilling Co. has introduced Casa Rayos Tequila to its range of spirits.

Produced in partnership with the Orendain family - the third-oldest tequila distilling family in Jalisco, Mexico - it is handcrafted and made from 100% agave plants.

Steven Kersley managing director of BrewDog Distilling Co said: “We’ve long looked on with jealousy at the burgeoning tequila category, and with growing frustration, because we couldn’t participate by creating some agave magic at our distillery in Scotland. With a clear vision of the style of tequila we wanted to create we didn’t want to wait any longer so set off to find the spirit we wanted to bottle. The partnership with Orendain made this possible. They distil some of the best tequila in Mexico and it was a dream for us to collaborate on creating this one of a kind tequila.”

It is made with lime and orange citrus zest, underpinned by spicy cracked black pepper, pink peppercorn, and an earthy component typical of the region in which the agave has been grown.

The bottle design pays homage to the agave plant, with its defined leaves adorning the azure tinted bottle.

Casa Rayos Tequilla (RRP £40) can be enjoyed sipped or in margarita and paloma cocktails and is available to purchase from Oak & Still and Amazon.
