Mijenta tequila reposado

In celebration of Mexico’s rich land and traditions alike, Mijenta recently added a Reposado statement to their lineup. It comes on the heels of a small-batch Blanco and predictably cranks up the dial on aroma, flavour, and texture. Every aspect of its production was overseen by Maestra Tequilera Ana Maria Romero, who selected the best agave plants and bespoke barrels, ageing the spirit for up to six months in a blend of American white oak, French oak, and French acacia casks. The first batch was limited to just 6500 bottles.

Upon cracking open your bottle of Mijenta Reposado, expect an inviting nose of vanilla and agave. The taste is as classic as can be, with perceptible notes of agave and black pepper, along with nuanced undertones of orange blossom, cherry, pear, and cacao nibs. Warm and mellow layers of black pepper spice and agave follow through to the finish, once again calling upon the classic tenets of a high-quality Reposado.

Meanwhile, sustainability lies at the very heart of Mijenta’s process, as does an ongoing commitment to local community, culture, and craft. All their paper-related packing materials are made from agave waste, while the brand actively supports local businesses by purchasing all their packaging elements in Mexico. Minimising environmental impact and optimising energy usage informs every step of the production process, from the harvesting to the bottling and everywhere in between.
