Canción Tequila, an ultra-premium tequila line, further expanded its footprint in the U.S. today with the launch of a new market – Connecticut. Distributed by Angelini Wine Ltd. of Centerbrook CT, consumers across the state can now experience the top shelf agave spirit with Arizona roots in local CT restaurants and liquor stores. Also distributed in the Mexican beach town of Puerto Peñasco on the Sea of Cortez, Canción Tequila hosts an annual 4 day music festival called Circus Mexicus, making it an International brand with authenticity in culture and concept.
Canción Tequila is the award-winning brand of 100 percent Blue Weber agave tequilas from international touring and recording artists Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers (formerly The Refreshments). Named after the Spanish translation of ‘Song’, Canción Tequila has found popularity on both sides of the border, boasting four varietals — Blanco, Reposado and Añejo— all having earned medals from national and international competitions, and the newly released Extra Añejo makes its public debut. Canción also boasts a 40% solar powered distillery in Jalisco, MX.
“We are proud to welcome new co-owners from Connecticut to embrace our brand and expand Canción Tequila’s presence on the East Coast,” said Alisa Clyne, co-founder of Canción Tequila. “Canción Tequila has been incredibly well received by tequila lovers and the momentum and excitement we’ve seen following our award wins across some of the industry’s most prestigious competitions further drives us to build out our national presence in the agave spirits category.”
Canción’s partnership with Angelini aligns with the brand’s core values. The Connecticut distributor’s goal is to be the leader in the delivery of craft spirits and wines. Angelini provides customers and suppliers exceptional service and value, making its collaboration with Canción a perfect fit.
“Angelini is very pleased to partner with Canción Tequila and to introduce their fine tequilas to the discerning spirits drinkers of Connecticut. We were deeply impressed by the quality of all four of the products, and we look forward to making new friends for both Canción and Angelini as we present the line. Equally impressive was the commitment of the brand and distillery to environmentally friendly practices. Now, more than ever, it’s tequila time in Connecticut!” Said Julius Angelini, Owner of Angelini Wines.

- Añejo: Simple elegance begins with aging for 18 months in Bourbon barrels heralding a full nose of smoky, woody notes. A silky entry to the palate that finishes with a harmonious blend of sweet and dry tastes of agave, tobacco, and hints of vanilla. Perfect for sipping. Lingers with a long, silky glow.
- Extra Añejo: A celestial union of a premium Bourbon barrel and agave spirit allowed to rest and coalesce for over three years. Tequila’s legendary obsidian terroir meets the heritage of American White Oak Bourbon barrels to conjure seamless notes of dry fruit, woody smoke, and hints of caramel and butterscotch. The finish is an extravagant, refined experience of balance between sweet and dry in an alluring palate of agave at its best.
