Ojo de Tigre roars into UK

Ojo de Tigre

Mexican distiller Case Lumbre has launched premium mezcal Ojo de Tigre (Tiger’s Eye) in the UK.

Ojo de Tigre (RSP £36.99, ABV 37%) is made with two varieties of 100% sustainably grown agave from the Oaxaca and Puebla regions of Mexico, and comes in a bottle inspired by historic amulet flasks.

It will be available from mid-October, distributed by Mangrove UK.

Mangrove boss Nick Gillet said: “As the mezcal market continues to grow it’s a great honour to welcome Ojo de Tigre to the UK. I am confident that British consumers will appreciate it – it’s a really accessible drink. For those who are new to the world of mezcal and tequila, I’d recommend you start your journey here.”

Earlier this year Pernod Ricard announced a partnership with Ojo de Tigre.
