Female-led Tequila brand celebrates Day of the Dead

Satryna, a new ultra-premium Tequila brand launched in London this week by an all-female team, celebrates the Day of the Dead with its striking skull packaging.

Nitzan Marrun and Elizabet Tovar launched Satryna at Annabel’s on Monday

The small batch brand is named in honour of ‘La Catrina’, a female skeleton wearing a wide-brimmed hat who is one of the most recognisable symbols of the Mexican Day of the Dead festival, which takes place each year on 2 November.

The bottle features an ornate skull motif in the centre, Aztec patterns, and an intricate metal skull cap based on a design by Mexican craftsmen from Oaxaca.

Each bottle is numbered and signed, and can be engraved on request.

Satryna is the brainchild of Nitzan Marrun of Tequilera Newton, master distiller Mireida Cortes, and brand ambassador Elizabet Tovar.

The range includes two expressions – a blanco and a cristalino, which is aged in oak then filtered through charcoal to remove the colour imparted by the wood.

Satryna is made from 100% blue Weber agave hand harvested every 12 years from the volcanic soils of Jalisco near Guadalajara. Steam cooked for 24 hours and triple distilled, the Tequila is aged in oak barrels from Cognac and California.

According to master distiller Mireida Cortes, Satryna is a Tequila with a “complex character, purity and distinctive smoothness”.

The brand has gone on sale this week at luxury department store Selfridges, with Satryna Blanco carrying an rrp of £72.50 and Cristalino costing £135 a bottle.

Satryna will be on pour at private members’ clubs Annabel’s, The Groucho Club and Tramp, while The Whisky Exchange will handle trade sales.
