Campari-Owned Mayenda Tequila Adds A Reposado To Its Mix



Last April, Campari Group launched their newest tequila brand Mayenda Tequila, crafted by Maestro Tequilero Jesus Susunaga at Casa Sun Nicolas (NOM 1440). The brand debuted with a single Blanco expression, which uniquely blended distilled roasted agave and agave miel (honey). 

A few months later, Mayenda is now expanding their product line with the launch of their second expression: a Reposado Double Cask. This expression was aged for six months in a mix of American and European oak casks, versus the typical two to three months that tequila reposados are aged for. 

Jesus Susunaga, maestro tequilero at Casa San Nicolás, said: “With Mayenda Blanco, we knew we had unlocked new possibilities for expressing deeper flavours of the agave, thanks to the two extra steps in our signature process; yet it still felt like we had only scratched the surface of what was possible.

“When developing our reposado, we decided to employ a double cask maturation and longer ageing process. This resulted in an exceptionally smooth and balanced, aged Tequila that maintains the soul of our beloved Blanco.”
