Vikera Tequila

VIKERA TEQUILA embodies the story of Melly Barajas, owner and master distiller of Vinos y Licores Aztecs, which is 100% owned and operated by women. Melly has had the chance to make a difference by providing many women the opportunity to maintain a steady career in the art of crafting the finest 100% blue agave Tequila in Mexico. Her ability to empower these women has earned her the name “Doña Melly” due to the impact she has made on many lives in her community. In the spirit of their hard work and dedication to the craft, Vikera Tequila is named after Melly and her Lady Vikings or "Vikeras". In order to help Melly continue to change lives, proceeds generated from each bottle of Vikera Tequila sold will be used to provide education and opportunities for the people of Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico.

 


EXTRAORDINARY TEQUILA MADE BY LADY VIKINGS

Vikera offers extraordinarily smooth and complex Tequila because of the unique oxygenated process, longer barrel aging and earthy notes that come from the highlands region of Tequila. Four varietals provide a distinct experience depending on your occasion and your tastes and are meant to be savored the same way you would savor a beautiful glass of wine.

BLANCO

VIKERA BLANCO is a unique “white” tequila infused with Anejo. The Blanco is distilled three times and then “oxygenated” to create a smooth, crisp flavor with a slightly oak and vanilla finish.

WHAT SETS IT APART

Clear or "white" tequilas are not usually aged and can have a "tin-like" flavor. They are most commonly used to mix in a margarita or other cocktail. Blanco is different because it is infused a three-year old Añejo into it to add a slightly oak flavor.

SERVING SUGGESTION: We recommend enjoying Blanco tequila over ice or in a premium margarita.

REPOSADO

Longer than other tequilas, VIKERA REPOSADO is aged in American white oak barrels for a minimum of six months. This extra aging gives Reposado a rich, gold color along with a slightly oak flavor. As with all Vikera tequilas, Reposado goes through an oxygenation process to give it an elegant and smooth finish.

WHAT SETS IT APART

Reposado means "rested" or "aged" and is used to describe tequila that has been put in an oak barrel unlike the Blanco tequila which goes into a used Jack Daniels barrel. Reposado is aged for eight to nine months versus the average of two months based on the assessment of the perfect flavor profile.

SERVING SUGGESTION: We recommend enjoying Reposado over ice or simply with a squeeze of lime.

AÑEJO

VIKERA AÑEJO is aged for a minimum of three years, much longer than the industry standard. The result is the highest quality flavor with a dark hue and an extremely smooth finish.

WHAT SETS IT APART

Añejo is the next stage. In order to legally be classified as an Añejo Tequila, it must be aged for a minimum of one year. Añejo is aged for three years instead of one!

EXTRA AÑEJO

Aged for seven years, this tequila has an extraordinarily oaky flavor similar to a fine bourbon. Its overall flavor imparts a creamy texture and ultra-smooth taste. 

WHAT SETS IT APART

In order to qualify as an Extra Añejo, the tequila has to be aged for three years. It is aged for seven years (double the time!) which gives its extraordinarily oaky flavor similar to a fine bourbon. Our Extra Añejo is the smoothest and most complex compared to other varietals. This makes it similar to a wine brand with a vintage attached to indicate premium quality.
