El Mayor Tequila Continues to Innovate and Announces New Variant
El Mayor Extra Añejo Rum Cask Finish Limited Edition Launches in September
(ST. LOUIS) August 17, 2020 – El Mayor® Tequila has launched a new limited edition variant, El Mayor Extra Añejo Rum Cask Finish. This new addition to the award-winning family of products is an ultra-premium handcrafted extra añejo tequila, aged a minimum of three and a half years and finished in rum casks, for an added layer of flavor.
“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, hand-selected 100% blue agave from the valley area of Jalisco. For this variant, only the most mature agave was selected in order to achieve the richest flavor. Before bottling, every batch is tasted by Master Distiller Rodolfo González to ensure it has the perfect taste profile. Then each bottle is filled, labeled and packaged by hand to ensure the ultimate quality and flavor. 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 attractive 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.
