Justin Timberlake is not just busy with his singing career and trying to land the role of Joker in the upcoming Batman movie he is also working on his tequila line.
Timberlake has added two new offerings to his 901 tequila brand he co-founded in 2009. 901 is now offering 901 Añejo and 901 Reposado which joins the original offering of 901 Silver.
The new tequilas will be released for sale this fall and retail for $45-$50. The Reposado (“rested”) tequila is aged in American new oak barrels for at least 8 months while Añejo (“aged”) sits in the oak barrels for at least 18 months.
Earlier this month 901 Tequila expanded its distribution to include the United Kingdom.
901 Tequila is triple distilled at the Corporativo Destileria Santa Lucia in Jalisco, Mexico from 100% blue agave. The 901 name comes from the area code of the singer’s Memphis home town.
Timberlake is one of several high profile entertainers to own a tequila brand. Chris Brown has Bonita Tequila, Carlos Santana has Casa Noble Tequila and George Clooney Casamigos Tequila, to name a few.
