El Mayor Tequila has launched a new limited-edition variant — El Mayor Extra Añejo Rum Cask Finish.
This new addition aged a minimum of three and a half years, and finished in rum casks.
“We are thrilled to launch this tequila as it surpassed our expectations in its complexity and character,” says Graciela González, fourth-generation distiller, and daughter of Master Distiller Rodolfo González at Destiladora González Lux. “The full body of the extra añejo finished in the rum casks leads to the perfect balance of oak, caramel and dark chocolate, with a smooth and elegant finish of cooked agave.”
As with every bottle of El Mayor, this limited edition is made with estate-grown, 100% blue agave from the valley area of Jalisco. For this variant, only the most mature agaves were selected in order to “achieve the richest flavor,” the company says.
El Mayor Extra Añejo Rum Cask Finish was distilled and produced at Destiladora González Lux (NOM 1603) and will be available nationwide in September. This limited-edition tequila is packaged in an embossed bottle, inside a decorative secondary box.
Approximately 6,000 bottles will be available on an allocated basis, with a suggested retail price of $129.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
