Mijenta announces Cristalino Tequila, the fourth addition to its range

Tequila company Mijenta has revealed its latest expression, a Cristalino Tequila. The limited-edition release joins the brand’s range of Blanco, Resposado, and Añejo. 
 
The Cristalino has been aged in casks with staves of American oak from across the United States. After around eight months of aging, the Tequila is filtered with charcoal, preserving the flavour while removing the colour. 
 
Maestra Tequilera Ana María Romero Mena said: “I love to bring together the art and science of crafting tequila, and have been thrilled with the reception to Mijenta’s first three expressions… With the Cristalino, and other Mijenta expressions moving forward, I am excited to experiment with different techniques and approaches that showcase the depth and richness of the agave.”
 
Mijenta Co-Founder Juan Coronado added: “As a result of the meticulous process, our Cristalino possesses the richness of an Añejo, drinks like a Reposado and is perfect for cocktails that require a clear spirit, like the martini.
 
“As this style continues to grow in popularity, this expression will make an excellent choice for mixologists and cocktail enthusiasts.”
 
Tasting notes provided by Mijenta highlight maple, caramel, coffee, coconut, citrus, and cooked agave.
 
Mijenta Cristalino Tequila is available now in Harvey Nichols.
