CO-OWNERS:

The Chainsmokers, the multi-award-winning American pop duo consisting of Alexander “Alex” Pall and Andrew “Drew” Taggart. In addition to winning a Grammy, they have two American Music Awards, and seven Billboard Music Awards. They also have produced songs with Coldplay, “Something Like This,” and Halsey, “Closer.”

DETAILS: JAJA Tequila is a small batch tequila that is thoughtfully crafted, sweet and herbal. With the help local jimadores, the three friends-owners learned the importance of only using the best agaves. Aged between 7-8 years, each JAJA agave is cut and cooked in brick ovens for a total of 32 hours. Then each batch is “rested” for 8 hours and fermented for an additional 72 hours, allowing for its unique JAJA flavor. JAJA is produced sustainably and responsibly.

Cameron Mitchell Restaurants (CMR) offers varied concepts, ranging from multi-location upscale destinations to single neighborhood favorites. CMR operates 37 restaurants company-wide under 15 different concepts, including the award-winning national Ocean Prime concept with 16 locations in 12 states plus the district of Columbia and Lincoln Social Rooftop, a bar and lounge in the Short North District of Columbus, OH.

WHO: David Miller, President and COO, Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, “We are looking forward to a long and engaging relationship between JaJa Tequila and CMR; and we’ll be announcing upcoming events and activities soon. The company’s mission around quality, sustainability and philanthropy are synergistic to CMR’s. We were pleased that the Chainsmokers’ Alex and Drew had positive experiences and saw the potential for a collaboration after dining in several of our restaurants in and outside of Columbus.”

Andrea Cornwell, Director of Beverage, Cameron Mitchell Restaurants and Ocean Prime: “We are excited to work with JAJA as they build their business through channels that we admire. The craft-oriented, lifestyle driven messaging of Jaja partners well with the evolution of our beverage program. Our mission was to create a Margarita that is representative of our partnership. It’s primary focus is the quality of Jaja Reposado, complemented by fresh citrus and finished off with a savory Tajin lime. This is a great snapshot of how we approach the development of our artisanal, fresh bar program.”

Martin Hoffstein, Co-Founder + COO, JAJA Tequila: “As JAJA continues to expand its presence across the country we are constantly seeking like minded partners who share our vision and that is what we found when we entered this partnership with Ocean Prime and Cameron Mitchell Restaurants. We’re looking forward to collaborating on cocktails beyond the JAJA LOL as their artisanal bar program continues to grow and evolve.”

About JAJA Tequila
JAJA Tequila (pronounced ha ha) was founded in 2018 by brothers Maurice and Elliot Tebele and their childhood friend Martin Hoffstein, with the mission of creating a fun, modern and authentic luxury tequila. Soon after they expanded their team to include The Chainsmokers (Alex Pall and Drew Taggart) as co-owners of the brand. All the products in JAJA’s portfolio are produced using slow non-industrial methods at a heritage distillery led by a group of distillers who have over fifty years of experience in the industry. The brand has an undying commitment to sustainability including their support of TIP (the Tequila Interchange Project), which enforces fair pay and proper healthcare for the jimadores and partners directly with agave farm owners to leave a portion of their crop untouched for pollination by the local bat population. JAJA offers three varieties Blanco, Reposado and Añejo and is available nationwide.
