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. “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 variant is made with estate-grown, hand-selected 100% blue agave from the valley area of Jalisco. Before bottling, every batch is personally tasted by 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 at Destiladora González Lux and launched nationwide in late September. This limited edition tequila is packaged in an ultra-premium embossed bottle that’s inside a decorative secondary box – making for a beautiful presentation!
