About Mijenta Tequila Reposado
Mijenta is an artisanal, small batch premium tequila carefully crafted in the Highlands of Jalisco. The brand, which launched its first expression, a blanco, in late August 2020, was created by Ana Maria Romero, a maestra tequilera with over 25 years of experience in the industry, who joined forces with the co-founder and lead investor Mike Dolan, a former CEO of Bacardi. Inspired by Mexico’s cultural heritage, Mijenta celebrates the best of the land and its people with a unique handmade spirit, crafted from the best possible ingredients and using a traditional process. Romero oversees the entire creation of the Mijenta tequila, from the selection of the fully mature agaves and the fermentation of their slow cooked hearts, to distillation in pot stills and bottling.
Mijenta is committed to environmental sustainability and supporting the local community. Its production adheres to the principles of the circular economy at all stages, from sustainable sourcing to responsible procurement practices, conscious packaging and land preservation. Mijenta’s labels are made of agave waste, and the packaging is locally produced and eco-certified, with bottles made from locally sourced stock glass. The brand is also closely connected with the people who make the tequila, and even its name Mijenta was inspired by the words mi gente (my people). In addition to creating jobs in the local community, Mijenta also provides educational opportunities for its team members and their families, and promotes the preservation and protection of traditional skills through a foundation.
Mijenta’s Reposado is an elegant and complex tequila double distilled from certified Blue Weber agave grown in deep red, clay soil of the Jalisco highlands. The tequila is aged up to six months in a blend of American white oak, French oak and French acacia casks. Mijenta is not filtered, enhancing its unique character. A limited number of numbered bottles was made available, with only 6,500 produced in the first batch.
