About Butterfly Cannon The Winged King Reposado Tequila

The butterflies know no borders and neither does this Tequila. Monarch Butterflies are a mesmerizing species that reside in Texas during the year but spend their winters down in Northern Mexico. In 2021, the Butterfly Cannon Tequila brand was launched to celebrate the species and help to restore their ever-shrinking natural habitat. As the butterflies do, the Winged King Reposado belongs to both countries: using Mexican tequila-making methods and some American wood, the brand produced a spirit equally mesmerizing as the butterflies that inspired it. This artisan tequila is made with 7-8 year old agave leaves that were hand-collected and slow-cooked for a minimum of 3 days in traditional steam ovens. After the cooking, the pinas are left to cool for 2-3 days before being mashed and distilled. The slow process assures the tequila retains all the natural agave flavor. The tequila is then left to mature in American oak barrels for 8 months before it is bottled in an impressive solid ceramic masterpiece with a heavyweight, all-metal statuette stopper. This smooth, soft, and sweet 100% agave tequila has an AVB of 40% and it is best enjoyed neat or on the rocks.

About Butterfly Cannon Tequila

Located in New York, Biggar and Leith was founded in 2016 by industry veteran Elwyn Gladstone. The company is on a mission to bring quality spirits from family-owned producers to consumers across the globe. Gladstone was joined by Mark Teasdale in 2018 ― the pair have previously collaborated on launching successful brands such as Hendrick's Gin and The Kraken.

Butterfly Cannon Tequila was designed by the Biggar and Leith team and launched in 2021. The super-premium spirit is crafted using 7 to 8-year-old agaves that are turned into the precious spirit using traditional methods: the hearts of the plant are cooked in steam ovens, mashed, fermented, and distilled. Bottled at 80 proof, the lineup consists of 3 expressions: the Blue, Rosa, and the Cristalino, which differs from the standard threesome of blanco, reposado, and añejo offerings. "We created The Butterfly Cannon Tequila to make you rethink the Tequila category, making it an approachable Tequila designed for mixability," says Gladstone.

Named after the migration of US butterflies to Mexico, the tequila is produced in Mexico at Destiladora del Valle de Tequila.

About Tequila

Although tequila has developed a bad reputation, there's more to the spirit than just shots on a Saturday night.

This traditional Mexican drink origins in the state of Jalisco when according to a local legend, lightning struck an agave cactus before the Nahua tribe drank its warm nectar. Behold, tequila.

Legally, tequila has to be made of 51% of Blue agave around the Jalisco region in Mexico. There are different types of tequila according to age - from the youngest representatives, blanco, reposado, and añejo, to the oldest extra añejo.
