Mi Rancho is official Tequila of Ethiopian royal familyBy Owen Bellwood
Tequila brand Mi Rancho has been granted a Royal Warrant in Ethiopia and will be the exclusive Tequila of the country’s royal family.
Mi Rancho Tequila is the first producer to be granted a Royal Warrant by prince Ermias Sahle Selassie of Ethiopia.
Made using 100% Blue Weber agave in Jalisco, Mexico, Mi Rancho Tequila has been awarded the Warrant in recognition of its position as the exclusive Tequila distiller for the Ethiopian royal household.
Prince Ermias said: “I drink spirits only very occasionally, but when I do I want what I take to reflect my culture, and to have some meaning and quality.
“I believe that by giving a royal warrant to this product, which meets very high standards, we are furthering the historic links between Ethiopia and Mexico, and showing that together we have something of quality to offer the world.”
Mi Rancho Tequila currently produces three variants, an unaged Silver bottling, a Reposado Tequila rested for six months and an aged Añejo Tequila.
