Hello, my name is Nitzan Marrun, I am 25 years old and I am the founder of Satryna Tequila.
Well, It is a treasure that had been hidden for such a long time and I wanted the world to be able to experience and appreciate this amazing tequila.
Actually, my grandmother was the “owner/guardian” of the recipe. It took a bit of time indeed to convince her, but after she saw our vision she was keen to let us share it with the world.
Yes! I was 15 years old and home alone. I decided to invite my girlfriends over and I stole one of my parents’ bottles! I got in so much trouble.
Satryna is made from the finest tequilana blue weber agave that has been nurtured for 12 years and carefully selected. Steam cooked, triple distilled. Our reposado, añejo and añejo Cristalino are aged in French oak barrels imported from cognac and American Oak Barrels from California.
It is carefully distilled by our amazing Maestra Tequilera Mireida Cortés.
It is a unique balance of the art of making tequila for centuries with a modern distillation process. You will find purity and smoothness in every sip.
It is a beautiful tradition full of culture, expression, honour, colour and Joy. A beautiful way to honour those who have passed. It is a celebration of death but also a celebration of life. This is why we turn to it for our inspiration.
Everyone has a different way of celebrating Day of the Dead. Never forget your altar. Pictures of our friends and family who are not with us anymore, offer tequila, food, objects, candles and fill it with Color and Cempazuchil flowers.
I am from Mexico City. The best word to describe my relationship with this city is “totally in love”. It has a cool exciting vibe that attracts the new, the different and the creativity in people.
There are amazing bars with great mixologists. I always like to stroll around different parts of town and search for new concepts and projects as well as mixology proposals.
I have several bars that I love. There is Artemisa in Mexico City with an amazing selection of distilled and great drinks as well as a super cool interior design also Ombra de vin in Milan which has an amazing concept and a delightful vibe.
Yes, all products have been following the family recipe, they all have been ready, we just decided to launch the white tequilas first.
I did not consciously choose to make Satryna a female-led brand. But as you can see we are rocking it.

We all have dogs and for some reason, they are always present in our Zoom calls.
My favourite way to drink Satryna is by itself in a fluted cup. I love to be able to enjoy the complexity of it. However, if I had to choose a cocktail, I would go for one of the Satryna Signatures called ‘Satryna Love’. All you need is:
50ml Satryna Blanco
15ml pear shrub
I think it works very well. You do not lose any of the flavours.
I am usually up early enough to get a hold of the Satryna European team. We have many internal follow up calls where we share our experiences and lessons. This helps us think of better ways to implement strategies to get to our customers.
Then I usually take some time to answer emails and work on administrative matters. Afterwards, I try to attend all appointments with Restaurants and Bars including training. Then I treat myself with a glass of Satryna Cristalino to finish up my day.
Breaking stereotypes. We are young women in an all male-dominated industry, sometimes you need to step up your game to be taken seriously. Believe in ourselves and take what we need to make our project happen.
The name Satryna comes from Catrina. We initially wanted to name it that but my friends from the United Kingdom kept pronouncing the C as an S for some reason. We really liked how it sounded.
Our friends at Ganzo Hotel in Cabos say Elon Musk kept ordering our tequila during one of his visits.
We have a custom of always shaking any bottle of any spirit before opening it so all the elements of the liquid are mixed.
