This Cinco de Mayo, Astral Tequila gave back to the region that’s brought us the tequila we know and love. At the Astral House Bar pop-up in the Lower East Side, visitors helped build homes in Jalisco while sipping on a house margarita.
Astral Tequila, known for its crisp citrus, clover honey, and bright white pepper tasting notes, is taking sustainability to a whole new level. They partnered with civil engineer Martha Cardoso of the Adobe Brick Project to turn the agave leftover from their distillation process into adobe bricks. The bricks will be donated to build homes and community centers in Jalisco, creating more places for people to gather with loved ones and feel connected.
To celebrate, the Astral House Bar pop-up featured a wall of hundreds of tequila bottles — the byproduct of which will be used to build a home in Jalisco, Mexico. Partygoers tried Astral Tequila Blanco in margaritas and cocktails personalized to their astrological sign, as well as snacked on chips and guacamole, picked up some free merchandise, and purchased a bottle or two to support the project.
The partnership between the Adobe Brick Project and Astral Tequila is helping to keep waste out of landfills and build homes for those in need — giving back has never tasted better.
Try Astral Tequila Blanco yourself and support the project by ordering online, or purchasing a bottle at select retailers.
