This Tepeztate mezcal comes from multiple batches of the rare agave, which likes to root in rocks and grow off mountainsides. Tepeztate agaves age anywhere between 15 to 30 years before harvesting and typically require a third distillation due to their lower sugar content.
Bold and complex, the Tepeztate’s heavier body relays its intense flavors. High smoke and minerality coat the palate which opens peppery undertones. Slate and oil notes close out this expressive mezcal.
