Description automatically generated with low confidence

Made with skill, art, and passion, AsomBroso Tequila is inventive while honoring the long-standing traditional methods. This exceptional brand has been awarded prestigious accolades in the distilled spirits industry and is recognized as an ultra-premium tequila.

 


Ricardo Gamarra, the creator of AsomBroso Tequila, has accomplished many firsts in tequila history. He was the first to market a pink hued Bordeaux rested reposado. A tequila like no other, La Rosa reposado begins with our awarded El Platino silver.  Once the final filtration is completed, the tequila is then “rested” (reposado) for 3 months in French Oak casks previously used for fine Bordeaux wine.  We created this resting process which imparts the natural pink color from the wine and gives our reposado a subtle sweet finish resulting in an unparalleled taste experience.  

 

A few additional AsomBroso originalities are listed below: 

 

·       Resting tequila in new French Oak barrels

  • Double barrel resting extra anejo tequila 
  • Resting a 10-year aged tequila in Grand Marnier cognac barrel 
  • Double barrel resting a 6-year tequila in an Irish Whiskey barrel 
  • Double barrel resting an 11-year tequila in vintage port barrels 
  • Rest tequila in new French Oak for 11 years and bring it to market

Quarter strawberry and muddle in a shaker with tequila and coconut liqueur. Strain, remove strawberry chunks, and return to shaker. Add all additional ingredients. Shaker with ice and strain into a glass full of crushed or nugget ice.

AsomBroso Tequila one of the most expensive bottles of Tequila in the world

about 2 months ago

Tequila is booming right now, with the most recent stats showing that the sector will generate sales of US$24.19 billion by 2031. SOURCE

 

But what are the most expensive bottles of Tequila in the world, and how much were they sold for?  As Tequila's reputation among consumers shifts from party drink to a spirit for all occasions with a burgeoning luxury appeal, people are more and more willing to part ways with a decent chunk of change for their favorite agave-based tipple. The magazine The Drinks Business has included AsomBroso Tequila as one of the 10 most expensive bottles of Tequila in the world. 

 

Our Del Porto Extra Anejo tequila is another first of its kind from Founder Ricardo Gamarra. Beginning with our awarded Vintage Extra Anejo, Ricardo DOUBLE BARRELS the tequila an additional 6 to 9 months in hand chosen port wine barrels imported from Portugal.  This beautiful tequila is then adorned in a meticulous crystal decanter hand made by the famous Italian artisan, Luciano Gambaro in Murano Italy.

 

TASTE PROFILE:

Del Porto is smooth and silky while the aroma inhibits a semi sweet, yet oaky persona; palate entry is smooth with floral undertones, while the mid-palate gives way to a toffee and sweet port. Join Ricardo in the tasting with Ricardo video as he shares his thoughts on the Del Porto.  TASTINGWITHRICARDO

Product Spotlight AsomBroso La Rosa Reposado

about 2 months ago

A tequila like no other, LaRosa begins with our awarded El Platino silver. Once the final filtration is completed, the tequila is then "rested" (reposado) for 3 months in French oak casks previously used for fine Bordeaux wine. We created this resting process which imparts the natural pink color from the wine and gives our reposado a subtle sweet finish resulting in an unparalleled taste experience.  Awarded the “Double Gold Medal" at the San Fran­cisco World Spirits Competition.

Spirits industry investments are reflecting ‘recession resistant’ profitability

2 months ago

Consumers splurging on pricey alcohol

 

Soaring inflation has made life harder for most of the world — but some people are still doing shots of fancy tequila. NYPOST

 

 

Although no company is entirely recession-proof, the spirit industries tend to see strong performance even when unemployment increases and consumer sentiment falls. DRINKS

 

Therefore, MarketWatch alluded to the idea that adding these industries to your  portfolio when a recession hits (or before) might be an excellent strategy. MARKETWATCH

 

We at California Tequila, Inc are poised to ride the luxury tequila growth that is growing double digits in every US state.  TEQUILASALES

Our company has passed a milestone for a spirit’s company shipping over 27,000 cases in the past 12 months.  Sales of luxury tequila continue to soar and outpace all other spirit categories.

Our company’s primary use of funds is increasing on hand inventory to ensure we in a position to capitalize on opportunities and new markets.

As you may have heard, we’re raising capital via an equity crowdfunding campaign on StartEngine!

In today’s update, I am going to cover everything you need to know about crowdfunding and our current raise.

 

Regulation Crowdfunding and Title III of the JOBS Act

 

Regulation Crowdfunding (Reg CF) is a new way for startups to raise capital by selling securities through crowdfunding. In the past, a startup could only offer and sell its securities to accredited investors and then only if it complied with complex federal and state registration requirements.

 

In the past, venture capitalists and angel investors who had a net worth of $1M or an annual income of $200K had a monopoly on investment opportunities in early-stage startups. The average shareholder could not get these high-risk, high-reward investments.
 

Once the JOBS Act was passed, this all changed.

Now, just about anybody can have access to these potential high-growth opportunities and are able to share in the success of these exciting ventures!
 

The new regulations surrounding Title III of the JOBS Act have gone into effect, enabling companies to raise up to $5 million annually, as opposed to the previous maximum amount of $1.07 million.

 

Reasons to Invest

  • Achieved 86.6% increase in YTD Sales 2022
  • Over 27,000 Cases Sold in the last 12 months
  • Sold in 37 U.S. States with 13 New States Launching this year
