Yes, those are real gold flakes
Cartel | Kar’tel | noun: a cooperation among members of a group to promote a mutual interest.
When a group of friends in Southern California, who prided themselves as true tequila connoisseurs, got together, they prided themselves as a family with the goal of achieving the most unique, smooth and flavorful Tequila ever created.
They travelled to to a small town named Jesus Maria, known for its age old tradition in crafting Tequila.
With the desire to create a tequila that was like no other on the market, they set out to do just that.
El Cartel Tequila is the most luxurious, ultra premium tequila… and it’s complemented with 24 karat gold flakes. This tequila can’t be compared to any others and is perfect for the true tequila enthusiast.
And celebrities are drinking it up
El Cartel Tequila Silver is made with 100% Agave and suspended, edible gold flakes. This unique suspension matrix of gold combined with extraordinary Tequila is what exhibits the ultimate luxury spirit, El Cartel Tequila! Estate grown in the very highest regions of Jalisco, Mexico, El Cartel is crafted using only the finest hand selected hearts of 100% Weber Blue Agave that have matured for at least nine years. The pinas are slow cooked in brick ovens and then distilled in the age-old traditions.
Unlike other spirits containing gold flakes, El Cartel’s fine metals float instead of sinking to the bottom of the bottle and glass.
El Cartel has the support of Puerto Rican reggaeton singer, songwriter, producer and actor, Daddy Yankee
