New York, April 30 (ANI): Pop singer Justin Timberlake’s new line of tequila called 901 is set to hit liquor store shelves.

Timberlake’s new tequila passed the sip test among some New York tequila aficionados with very discerning tastes.

They found themselves giving the drink high marks.

“It’s actually a really nice product. It has a nice richness to it, a full-body mouth feel, a nice finish,” the New York Daily News quoted Dave Kaplan, owner of East Village speakeasy-style bar Death & Co, as saying.

Head bartender Brian Miller said. “I gotta admit, I’m a little surprised. I get some vanilla [notes] … I like that.”

The spirit - named for the area code in the singer’s hometown of Memphis - is crafted from an old, non-Timberlake family recipe using 100 percent blue agave from Jalisco, Mexico.

Kaplan said that those details are a mark of quality that lands this 40-dollar tequila somewhere on the spectrum between the upscale brands Herradura and El Tesoro. (ANI)
