The GENTOO_MIRRORS variable is set in /usr/share/portage/config/make.globals:

FILE /usr/share/portage/config/make.globals
# Default distfiles mirrors. This rotation has multiple hosts and is reliable.
# Approved by the mirror-admin team.
GENTOO_MIRRORS="http://distfiles.gentoo.org"

#            **  DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE  **
# ***************************************************
# **** CHANGES TO make.conf *OVERRIDE* THIS FILE ****
# ***************************************************

It can be overwritten with an entry in /etc/portage/make.conf.

Mirrorselect is the tool for managing such entry. That entry can hold a space-delimited list of Gentoo Source Mirrors to check before downloading from the URL defined in an ebuild or downloading a snapshot (webrsync).

FILE /etc/portage/make.confTwo mirror locations in make.conf
GENTOO_MIRRORS="http://mirrors.evowise.com/gentoo/ http://lug.mtu.edu/gentoo/"

Available URLs can be found on Gentoo Source Mirrors.
