Mijenta has launched its second expression, Reposado which comes on the heels of its Blanco expression which launched September 2020.
Carefully crafted with a commitment to environmental sustainability and support for the local community, Mijenta’s Reposado is aged up to six months in a blend of American white oak, French oak and French acacia casks.
Presenting a more mature and fuller expression with a long finish on the palate, the Reposado possesses a delicate and inviting vanilla nose with notes of bergamot, honey, preserved fruits – such as cherry and pear – and orange blossom flowers, together with a mid-palate of cacao nibs. A limited number of bottles will be available, with only 6,500 produced in the first batch.
“Mijenta deeply respects the terroir of the Jalisco highlands, which is why we have aspired to craft a tequila that brings forth the region’s famous mineral-rich, red alkaline soil and unique fruity notes,” shares Mexico-based Maestra Tequilera Ana Maria Romero.
“Our vision is to allow for the cooked agave, its spices and aromas to continue to develop delicately by interacting with both the used American oak casks and the new French acacia and French oak casks. This process ensures that the aromas balance while the ageing brings forth soft and deep flavours with a powerful mouthfeel. Each element is carefully calibrated to obtain an aromatic palette and a silkiness that is entirely unique to Mijenta.”
