Mijenta, the award-winning, sustainable and artisanal tequila made from 100% Blue Weber Agave grown in the highlands of Jalisco, has launched its Blanco expression in the UK, available from the Mijenta web shop and Master of Malt. Inspired by a shared cultural heritage, Mijenta is a super-premium spirit that is carefully crafted with a commitment to environmental sustainability and support for the local community in Mexico.

Mijenta is inspired by “Mi Gente” meaning “My People” and refers to a collective mindset, a way of being and a community of like-minded people who come together to celebrate life. Mijenta was founded in 2020 by a passionate team including former CEO of Bacardi, Mike Dolan, award-winning mixologist and entrepreneur, Juan Coronado and sustainable designer and environmental activist, Elise Som.

Mexico-based Maestra Tequilera, Ana Maria Romero, designed and oversaw the entire creation process, from harvest to bottle. One of the most trusted, respected and awarded tequila authorities in Mexico, Maestra Tequilera Romero brings over 25 years of experience in the tequila industry to the Mijenta team.

“We are exceptionally pleased to be launching Mijenta in the UK as our first step towards realizing our global aspirations for the brand. Mijenta distinguishes itself with its outstanding flavour profile created by our Maestra Tequilera Ana Maria Romero who works in tune with the land to create a tequila with provenance and phenomenal taste,” shares Mike Dolan, Co-Founder and lead investor in the brand. “I’m extremely proud of the way this company does business, focusing on sustainability, and support for the local communities that harvest and produce our superb tequila.”

Elise Som, UK-based Co-Founder, sustainable designer and environmental activist says, “True luxury is to design with a responsible heart, at Mijenta, sustainable practices are at the very heart of our tequila”

"Mijenta Blanco is our first expression and was created with a strong feeling for the land. We wanted to develop a tequila that encapsulated the biodiversity, aromas, flavours and colour of the land of the region of Arandas", adds Mijenta Co-Founder, Juan Coronado.

From farm to bottle, Mijenta is committed to sustainable practices, minimizing environmental impact and maximizing the community’s energy efficiency. All paper-related components (label and box) are made of agave waste and the organization actively supports local businesses and communities by purchasing all packaging elements from Mexico. Mijenta has joined forces with Whales of Guerrero to boost community-driven conservation in the region. Whales of Guerrero preserves whales in the fishing village of Barra de Potosi and the southwest Pacific State of Guerrero, Mexico.

Mijenta achieves its distinctive flavour profile through traditional methods, ranging from the selection of agaves from the best plots, which are grown using zero pesticides and herbicides, to the fermentation of slow-cooked, unfiltered agaves to careful distillation in pot stills. Mijenta only uses fully mature, certified 100% Blue Weber Agave from the highlands of Jalisco, with a single plant taking six to eight years to reach maturity for harvest. The higher elevation of the Mijenta agave fields produces a smoother tequila with more fruitiness. Mijenta is also not filtered, which enhances its unique character and each bottle is individually numbered by hand.


Blanco, the first expression from Mijenta, presents the brand’s core offering and will be followed by a Reposado in the second half of 2021.

OTTAWA, ON, July 20, 2021 /CNW/ - The third annual day dedicated to the Canadian beer and brewing industry – Canadian Beer Day - occurs on October 6, 2021, with coast-to-coast celebrations at local breweries, pubs, restaurants or at home with loved ones. Canadian brewers, beer enthusiasts, and the various local businesses tied to the production and sale of beer across the country will be raising a glass to #CheersAgain on this #CDNBeerDay – recognizing the positive impact beer has on our lives, culture, communities and economy.

Canadian Beer Day is dedicated to celebrating beer and the thousands of Canadians involved in brewing, selling, delivering, serving – and enjoying – the beverage loved by millions across the country. The celebration, which occurs every year on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, recognizes and celebrates beer and breweries in Canada and those throughout its supply chain – agriculture, manufacturing, warehousing, transportation, tourism and hospitality.

"Beer brings Canadians together, and it's been a part of our country's culture and communities for generations. The last 16 months have been a challenging time for Canadians and businesses, specifically those in hospitality, making beer's role in bringing friends and family together more important than ever," said Dana Miller, Director, Communications and Engagement for Beer Canada.

"Whether in a small or larger group this year, we hope that Canadians will join us in support of our brewers, restauranteurs, barley farmers and all those connected to beer by raising a glass of your favourite Canadian-made beer on October 6," Miller added.

Canadian brewers directly employ over 19,000 Canadians, and approximately 149,000 jobs across Canada's hospitality, tourism, agriculture, and manufacturing sectors are supported by the production and sale of beer.

Canadian Beer Day is all about celebrating the beverage Canadians love and the positive contributions brewers make throughout the year. To find out more, visit

BARDSTOWN, Ky. – Heaven Hill Distillery has launched a logger certification sponsorship program in partnership with Independent Stave Company (ISC), creating a collective of family-owned companies dedicated to the future of American Whiskey. As part of Heaven Hill Brands’ corporate sustainability strategy first announced in January 2021, conserving the ecosystems that support the greater distilled industry and partners is a key priority. A sustainable supply of white oak is critical to the future supply of American Whiskey and the generations of loggers whose livelihoods depend on the trees.

Beginning in 2020, Heaven Hill and ISC sponsored loggers to complete sustainability certification through their state association logging programs, resulting in 120 certified loggers to date. As a core tenet of Heaven Hill’s sustainability values, the cultivation of thriving communities placed a focus on forestry management and an investment in education for those who first touch the natural resources that create the barrels. Much like the whiskey process from grain to glass, the journey of an American white oak takes years of patience. From an acorn to a tree ready for the cooperage, a span of 30-100 years may pass. The long-term forest management is crucial to helping trees thrive, and cooperages rely on the certified loggers to implement timber stand improvement, tree-felling and general safety guidelines.

“A sustainable supply of white oak entails relationships with the landowners, loggers, cooperages and the distilleries who all rely on each other as good stewards of these natural resources,” said Rachel Nally, Heaven Hill Environmental & Sustainability Manager. “We often consider the life of a barrel after the Whiskey is dumped, but it’s the sustainable forestry management that enables us to start that lifecycle. Heaven Hill’s partnership with Independent Stave Company to educate loggers is another step in ensuring the future of the industry.”

Loggers interested in future certification or state associations interested in learning more about sponsorship for American White Oak courses can contact Independent Stave Company at Together, Heaven Hill and ISC will continue to fund this training initiative as good stewards of natural resources and create opportunity for safer, smarter logging. As more trees thrive under these practices, so do the generations of business to come. To learn more about how this program was implemented with the Tennessee Forestry Association, please visit the Heaven Hill Distillery blog here.

“Through Independent Stave Company’s partnership with Heaven Hill, we are aiming to create a sustainable future for generations of loggers and landowners,” said Jason Stout, Vice President of Business Development. “Loggers are the heart of America and preserve the tradition of white oak that sustains the spirit of America, Whiskey. We are excited to provide an opportunity to further the education of these hard-working men and women whose livelihoods depend on sustainable forestry.”
