Tequila Cazadores Unveils First-Ever Estate Release

Tequila Cazadores, one of the most popular premium tequilas in Mexico and the United States, has unveiled Tequila Cazadores 100 Year Estate Release. A limited edition expression celebrating the 100-year anniversary of the brand’s original reposado recipe.

This limited edition reposado blend honors the brand’s original tequila recipe that was perfected 100 years ago by a hard-working visionary in the Highland town of Arandas in Jalisco, Mexico in 1922. The closely guarded secret recipe was passed down by word of mouth for generations and is still used to create every single bottle of Tequila Cazadores.

The 100 Year Estate Release was produced using agave that was grown and matured on the Cazadores Distillery property in Los Altos de Jalisco. Made from a blend of tequilas aged in a combination of the distillery’s best hand-selected American oak and new French oak barrels, resulting in an extra special blend for such a monumental milestone.

This unique first-ever estate release from the brand will serve as a time capsule of this centennial anniversary for years to come. We are so excited to share this extra special blend of agave from the Cazadores property with tequila enthusiasts.

Jay Needham, Tequila Cazadores Brand Director.

The reposado tequila has a bright gold color from the unique blend of tequila from American oak and new French oak barrels. Tequila Cazadores 100 Year Estate Release has a smooth and sweet taste with a citrus and vanilla finish and an aroma of intense cooked agave with fruity and spicy notes.

The Tequila Cazadores 100 Year Estate Release will be coming soon in 2022 in limited quantities nationwide and on their website for a suggested retail price of $39.99 for a 750mL bottle. Come into the beautiful world of Cazadores.

Introducing Hemingway Rye Whiskey: First Edition Bottles Available Now

Hemingway Whiskey Company today announced the launch of Hemingway Rye Whiskey First Edition with the release of the inaugural 972 bottles. This initial offering is a blend of straight rye whiskeys finished in ultra-premium rum seasoned Oloroso Sherry casks. Inspired by American author, journalist, and storyteller Ernest Hemingway, it was crafted by the Calls, a family with Bardstown roots and more than 230 years of distilling experience.

Hemingway Rye Whiskey was founded by a team with deep experience in Kentucky whiskey. It is led by Steve Groth, whiskey pioneer and co-founder of the revered Angel’s Envy Bourbon brand. The Call family, Seventh-Generation Master Distiller Ron Call and his sons, Clayton Call and Eighth-Generation Master Distiller Jacob Call hand source, blend, and finish the rye whiskey, building on generations of distilling expertise and innovation.

The first offering is Hemingway Rye Whiskey First Edition, a captivating blend of 96% 9-year-old Indiana Straight Rye and 4% 4-year-old Kentucky Straight Rye, the latter distilled by Jacob Call and crafted with his signature spice. Both are finished with the sweetness and softness of Ron Call’s own rum-seasoned Oloroso Sherry casks. It is 100 proof and a dark amber color. It has a rich caramel and brown sugar aroma, complemented by back notes of soft rye and vanilla. On the palate, it has notes of rich cherry, toasted oak, creamy caramel, and cinnamon. A rich mouthfeel bursts with fruit flavor leading into a soft, sweet, and warm finish.

The First Edition release of Hemingway Rye debuts today in Collector’s Packaging. With only 972 bottles, it is ready to be welcomed by the most discerning whiskey drinkers and worthy destinations. The bottles are hand-numbered and hand-signed by the Calls; each will come encased in a beautifully textured library-style box, which includes a gold foiled Hemingway signature, ‘First Edition’ inscription, and a satin pull ribbon. Each First Edition bottle also features a unique, removable card on the back, inspired by old-fashioned library book cards, inviting imbibers to pour their own stories and log who they share their rye with.

“As an eighth-generation distiller and Kentuckian, I’ve had the chance to work with a variety of whiskey brands throughout my distilling career but having the chance to work with my father and brother on our Hemingway Rye Whiskey has been a dream come true”, said Jacob Call. “Together, we have poured our hearts into this first edition blend, and we’re proud to share it”.

The new Hemingway Rye Whiskey brand is inspired by rich storytelling and the lessons and traditions passed down from generation to generation. Ernest Hemingway lived a life full of tales worth telling and the same is true for the Calls. Growing up in Kentucky, the Call family shares a similar passion for storytelling and tradition. Ron, Jacob, and Clayton make it a priority to sit down together while enjoying the fruits of their labor to share stories and lessons learned. Hemingway in his own right, loved his whiskey. He didn’t drink while he wrote, he drank after the writing was done for the day.  He said it helped him, “change his ideas”. Indeed, he wrote, “When you work hard all day with your head and you must work again the next day, what else can change your ideas and make them run on a different plane like whiskey?”

“With Hemingway as inspiration, the Call family has authored a new whiskey masterpiece”, said Steve Groth, Founder of Hemingway Rye. “It’s an honor to have the Call family and their centuries of whiskey making experience as part of this new offering. With a focus on quality and innovation, the legacy team we have in place has crafted this premium rye whiskey with passion and we can’t wait to get it in the hands of rye whiskey lovers everywhere”.

Hemingway Rye Whiskey First Edition is now available, crafted by the Call Family of Distillers and Inspired by Ernest Hemingway

Hemingway Rye Whiskey will be crafted at Jacob Call’s new Western Kentucky Distilling Co. in Beaver Dam, Kentucky.

Availability and Pricing: Hemingway Rye Whiskey First Edition will be available for pre-purchase online only at a suggested retail price of $149.99 for a 750ml signed Collector’s Bottle, shipping to most states. Rye lovers and holiday gift givers should move quickly to secure one of the 972 First Edition bottles, expected to ship in early December.

Nosotros Tequila Releases First-Ever Tequila Aged in Cider Barrels

In the spirit of the Season of Change, Nosotros Tequila and Mezcal releases its Cider Añejo, the first-ever tequila aged in wet cider barrels, just a few months after launching its Madera line. This limited release was created in collaboration with 2 Towns Ciderhouse.

2 Towns Ciderhouse used former Woodford Reserve Whiskey barrels to create their ‘Bad Apple’ cider batch. These barrels were then moved to Mexico by Nosotros for the first step in aging this cider añejo. Nosotros Blanco was aged for 20 months using a single barrel aging process, to create the first-ever tequila aged in wet cider barrels.

Nosotros describes this añejo as “Rich and smooth, with a candied complexion, featuring a one-of-a-kind tasting profile and production process. The experience of this añejo is a unique blend of cooked agave and warm apple, along with spicy sandalwood and nutty almond scents”.

“My cousin is the Head Cidermaker at 2 Towns Ciderhouse, which sparked this idea,” shared Michael Arbanas, Nosotros Co-Founder. “When developing our Madera Collection, it is important for us to maintain Nosotros’ additive free process while creating unique products, and this was the perfect way to do something that has never been done in our category”, continued Carlos Soto, Nosotros Founder and CEO. “We are excited that that we now get to share this perfect Autumn spirit”, finished Arbanas.

“It is so cool to be working with Nosotros on the cutting edge of innovation” said David Takush, Head Cidermaker for 2 Towns Ciderhouse in Oregon. “Their creativity and dedication to excellence really shines through in this collaboration. I was truly amazed at my first taste of this añejo out of the barrel”.

With only 1,500 individually numbered bottles, do not miss out on this once in a lifetime product, sold on the Nosotros website and in a limited number of partners in our distribution markets.

About Nosotros

Founded in 2017, Nosotros became the winner of the San Francisco World Spirit Competition, claiming the ‘World’s Best Tasting Tequila’ title a few months after joining the marketplace with Nosotros Blanco. Since then, Nosotros has launched Nosotros Reposado, Nosotros Mezcal (Espadín y Tobalá), and its Nosotros Madera Collection. For more information, please visit Nosotros Tequila and Mezcal and @nosotros.

DefenAge Skincare Announces Men’s Skin Provision System Specifically Formulated for Men

Products of American company DefenAge, founded in 2014 by a team of regenerative medicine experts whose anti-aging discovery became the heart and soul of its formulas, are widely recommended by dermatologists as a high-performing, anti-aging cosmetic skincare for visible skin rejuvenation and as a safe alternative for retinol. Today the manufacturer and distributor of the revolutionary, evidence-based, anti-aging products, launches its first skincare system developed for men.

Evolved from the DefenAge Men’s Skincare Kit, the brand’s highly successful and popular skincare set for men, the new Men’s Skin Provision is further tailored directly to men’s unique needs and expectations for skincare products.

The Next Generation of Men’s Skincare

The Men’s Skin Provision set is centered around the regenerative power of DefenAge’s proprietary Defensin-molecules, which naturally refresh and renew skin (US Patent No. 11,491,096). This scientifically-proven technology is an effective solution for daily skin maintenance, as it promotes healthy skin that looks fresh, energized, and young.

The simple-to-use two-step system contains a face cleanser and moisturizer. Through an innovative formulation, DefenAge discovered a way to make the new moisturizer, 24/7 Barrier Balance Cream – Men’s Formula, just as effective as DefenAge’s award-winning, clinically proven multi-step system, cutting down on time and steps and creating a more simple and efficient system for men. Formulated for men, the innovative moisturizer received an advanced inflammation-controlling system for smoothing and calming, as well as an upgraded super-charged moisturization complex. It also contains barrier protection ingredients, antioxidants, vitamins, and vital nutrients for skin.

We conducted significant market research about what is most important to our male-identifying customers and heard what they had to say about our Men’s Skincare Kit. Overwhelmingly, we found that men seek simplicity, value, and efficiency in their skincare. We discovered a way to deliver this without compromising efficacy.

Nikolay Turovets, DefenAge’s CEO

The Men’s Skin Provision is priced below $100 for a month’s supply of cleanser and moisturizer.

Additionally, DefenAge developed a Men’s Skin Booster to jump start the skin for high-performance use once or twice a year. This system contains a full size DefenAge 1-Step-Mult-Cleanse and 24/7 Barrier Balance Cream – Men’s Formula, plus a ‘booster’ of the Defensins-packed 8-in-1 BioSerum and exfoliating 2-Minute Reveal Masque to optimize skin regeneration and cell turnover. The Men’s Skin Booster concept was developed after multi-year observations and clinical studies proved that this extra dose of Defensin-molecules promotes new skin, ‘boosting’ the skin to repopulate with fresh cells when done at least annually. This combination produces outstanding benefits for the look and appearance of the skin and overall visible skin health.

Find the Men’s Skincare Provision on defenage.com for a $98 month supply of cleanser and moisturizer. The Men’s Skin Booster retails for $134. The products will also be available in a professional formulation (Pro Exclusive Platinum Edition) through select dermatology and plastic surgeon offices, and med spas.

Watch the Trailer for ‘Lamborghini: The Man Behind The Legend’

Lionsgate recently released the first official trailer for ‘Lamborghini: The Man Behind The Legend’. ‘Based on the incredible true story’ of Automobili Lamborghini founder Ferruccio Lamborghini, the upcoming film chronicles “the long life of the iconic entrepreneur, from the manufacturing of tractors at the start of his career, to creating military vehicles during World War II, and then on to designing and building the Lamborghini cars that ultimately defined his profound legacy”.

Told through a tightly constructed narrative style and imaginative visual design, ‘Lamborghini – The Legend is the true story of the man behind the machine’.

‘Lamborghini: The Man Behind The Legend’ stars Frank Grillo as Ferruccio Lamborghini, with Mira Sorvino, Eliana Jones, Francesca De Martini, Luca Riemma, Giorgio Cantarini, and Gabriel Byrne as his rival Enzo Ferrari. Written and directed by Bobby Moresco, a great focus is placed on Ferruccio’s rivalry with Enzo but a striking throughline throughout the project is the Lamborghini founder’s pursuit of unwavering perfection.

Watch the trailer for ‘Lamborghini: The Man Behind The Legend’ set to release in select theaters nationwide and on VOD November 18.
