The Kween is dead – long live the Queen

For many moons, we’ve heard the people’s cries for Killer Kween – for the return of her royal raspberry highness. But the Kween is gone.

Amid our search for a successor, we heard Spanish whispers of a powerful matriarch ruling over a certain region in Mexico, a land of rolling mountains swept with oak trees and blue agave, where multicoloured opals and jet-black obsidians sparkle beneath the earth.

What is this captivating region, you ask? It’s Tequila, Mexico ­– and its ruler is the one and only Tequila Queen.

Compadres, all rise for the eighth limited-release from Counter Culture – Tequila Queen, our oak aged margarita.

Tequila Queen is brewed with lime juice, lactobacillus, salt, Cointreau and 50L of premium small-batch Arette Tequila – distilled on the edge of the ancient volcano that rises above Tequila – and is hopped with Galaxy and aged with oak.

Our new ruler, this margarita sour rushes the palate with citrus and salt and brings a Mexican twist to the Age of Queens. Viva la Reina!


Crowned with cacti, with a skull in one hand and a dagger in the other, Tequila Queen will stride through our brewery gates on Monday 10 August to select venues and bottle shops around the country. Watch out for the stockist listing then, too.

Limited Tequila Queen merchandise

For this especial release, we’re releasing a very limited and very special run of Tequila Queen shirts. These relaxed-fit tees are made from 100% GOTS certified organise ring-spun combed cotton and are printed with eco-friendly inks, making them softer on your skin and the environment. The Queen approves.
