Product description

A dry mineral base is offset nicely with an abundance of fruit, herbaceous notes and nuttiness. A viscous entry coats the mouth leading to a fruit forward mid palate with subtle sweetness that shines with bright citrus and persimmons. The finish is smooth with flavors of smoked lamb. This mezcal is made with wild agave Castilla, which is a close relative to agave Espadin. Similar to a Pechuga, during the second distillation, a leg of lamb, in addition to seasonal wild fruits and grains harvested from the local market, are suspended inside the bottom of the still in a basket. These wild fruits include strawberries, apples and pineapple, while additional ingredients consist of pecans and ginger. This mezcal is heavily viscous. It is fruity, but balanced with notes of citrus and finish of smoked lamb. AGAVE CASTILLA Part of the American Oaxacensis agave family, the Castilla is a close cousin to the Espadín agave. Smaller in size than an Espadín and often discovered more in the wild, this agave is heavily influenced by its terroir. Sourced from a dry region in Oaxaca, the agave offered a distinctive mineral forward flavor. From the same field, calabazas (pumpkins), a traditional crop, have been long cultivated for hundreds of years lending more complexity to the agave. 100% Agave Americana - Castilla | Río de Ejulta, Oaxaca | NOM-0472X | Copper Pot Distilled
