Produced by Maestro Mezcalero, Edgar Gonzalez Ramirez in San Christobal Lachirioag.
This mezcal is distilled from 100% Espadin (Agave angustifolia), cooked in a conical earthen pit and milled using a traditional stone tahona before being fermented in open-air wooden vats.
Distilled three times using traditional wood-fired copper pot stills. Wild pineapple, blackberries, bananas, wild apples, plums, cinnamon and occasionally rice, plus a raw turkey breast are added on the third distillation.
The result is a rich and dense spirit with autumnal notes such as almond, baked apple, grilled pineapple, basil, chocolate and umami. The flavors are persistent and hang throughout the rich mouthfeel and long finish.
