The unique single-batch edition is the first of its kind in the ultra-luxury tequila’s collection. It will go on sale in an exclusive European launch at the UK’s oldest wine & spirits merchant on 20th November.
The award-winning ultra-luxury tequila Komos has launched its most exclusive expression yet, Komos XO. Produced in limited quantities with only 36 bottles available outside the American market, XO is made in a single batch and uses the rarest barrels and finest tequila aged up to 11 years. Komos XO joins the highest-rated tequila collection as the brand’s ultimate blend.
In a meticulously crafted aging process, this extraordinary tequila is aged in a combination of American oak ex-Bourbon and French oak ex-wine barrels, culminating in a final refinement in Spanish ex-Oloroso Sherry casks. The barrels, ranging from 3 to 11 years in age, bring forth a truly unique and unrepeatable tequila, embodying the pinnacle of craftsmanship and flavour complexity.
The Komos XO tasting experience is supremely complex and powerful. Rich aromas of chocolate, vanilla, toast and smoke meet a full, textured palate of dried fruits, followed by a seemingly endless finish. The rare liquid is presented in an elegant etched crystal decanter with the clear bottle designed to showcase the rich opulent colour of the tequila while maintaining the iconic Komos shape. Each crystal decanter is marked “Batch No. 1”, cementing its position with collectors and tequila aficionados. The once-in-a-lifetime batch will be exclusively available throughout Europe via Berry Bros. & Rudd and is bottled at the cask strength of 42% alcohol by volume. The bottle is housed in a luxurious, custom-fit box, thoughtfully designed for gifting.
Richard Betts, Komos Co-Founder says “It brings me immense pride to launch our latest and most premium expression yet with our fantastic partners at Berry Bros. & Rudd. With XO we set out to reach the epitome of aged tequila, meticulously designed to elevate any special moment. Having hand-picked every single barrel used, we ensured that only the finest, most refined tequila goes into this unparalleled blend.”
Sam Phillips of Berry Bros. & Rudd says “I am delighted Richard Betts and Komos have chosen Berry Bros. & Rudd for the exclusive launch of their fabulous first single batch outside of America. Agave-based spirits have been enjoying incredible growth in our business this last year across all channels from online to our private clients, both for drinking and collecting. It’s a particularly exciting time for spirits at Berry Bros. & Rudd and I am looking forward to future ultra-luxury releases being regularly featured in our new spirits shop during 2024.”
