Código 1530 Launches New Estate Harvest Blanco Tequila


October 10, 2022

Codigo 1530 - First Estate Harvest Blanco Tequila

Código 1530 announced the launch of its new Estate Harvest Still Strength Blanco tequila made with agave grown on the distillery’s estate.

In the tequila industry, less than 1% of tequila brands own the entire process from “field to bottle,” and Código 1530 counts itself in that exclusive group. Because of this control and oversight, Founder and Co-CEO Fede Vaughan, decided that it was the right time to harvest their Blue Weber Agave plants, waiting a full six years until they were fully mature with a brix level at its peak. The piñas averaged about 100 pounds each and were used to produce this limited Blanco.

Código 1530’s ultra-premium and super smooth tequilas get its distinct flavors from resting in fine French White Oak Wine Barrels until they are aged to perfection. Vaughan worked with Código 1530’s Master Distiller, Wilfrido Ortega, to do something never done before in the fermentation process. After cooking the estate harvest using juice from the first press, it is then fermented in small batches directly in French Oak wine barrels. The fermented juice is then distilled at Código 1530’s dedicated distillery.

Making sure the flavors of Amatitán terroir were present was a main priority in this Código 1530 Estate Harvest. Código 1530 prides itself in sourcing all components in Mexico and this special release is no exception. The bottles are made from 100% recycled Mexican glass. Handcrafted in Mexico, the sustainably sourced glass results in a beautiful, locally fabricated bottle. And since this Estate Harvest Still Strength Blanco was created from field to bottle on Código 1530’s owned land, there was lack of transport of agave which helps reduce the carbon footprint.  

This limited run Estate Harvest Still Strength Blanco will retail for $79, available now at  www.codigo1530.com and at select retail locations. In addition to its multiple tequila expressions, Código 1530 has recently added 2 new mezcal offerings to the portfolio. Código 1530 is available in all 50 states, and in 30 countries world-wide.
