GUADALAJARA, Mexico--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Casa Don Ramón, a long-standing favorite brand for tequila enthusiasts, today announced it’s expanding its U.S. available product line with the release of Mezcal Don Ramón Joven. It is a transcendent expression of this category of hand-made spirits. Made from 100% Salmiana Agave from Zacatecas, Mexico that has been aged for eight to 10 years, this clear spirit embodies the earthen smokiness of mezcal.
While Casa Don Ramón is typically known for its tequila offerings, including Tequila Don Ramón Limited Edition launched in October 2020 alongside brand ambassador, Pierce Brosnan, mezcal is a natural expansion to its American offering. According to recent reports, the mezcal market is set to grow by $979.02M USD between 2020-2024, registering a CAGR of over 24%.
Casa Don Ramón is dedicated to the sustainability of its industry. As such, for each Salmiana Agave harvested, Casa Don Ramón plants two more of the species in its place.
When sipping Mezcal Don Ramón Joven, the drinker will detect a balanced aroma of herbs, florals and fresh citrus layered with a subtle fruity finish brought forth by the agave. More specifically:
Agave: 100% Salmiana agave
Distillation: Double-distilled in pot still
Aroma: Herbal, subtly fruity and smokey
The bottle features an elegant silver Jaguar stopper, an animal significant in Mayan mythology as the ruler of the Underworld. The jaguar is representative of ferocity, power and valor.
