Agave: Cenizo (Agave Durangensis)
Palenque/Vinata: Vinata El Ojo (1870m elevation)
State: Durango, Mexico
Master Distiller: Valentín Cortés
Notes: This is truly special. Only one batch a year is produced. The first batch being produced for the birth of founder Bildo Saravia's daughter, Luciana, a future Mezcalera herself. Made from Cenizo, a second distillation with seasonal fruits and wild venison hung in the still. Very, very limited and very, very special.
There is a killer combination of ripe tropical fruit, and botanical like spice, juniper and angelica, which accents the very subtle gamey note. The palate is a lot to unpack, the spice and fruit sing in this, but it's so packed with complexity, it's hard to pick it all apart at once. It's an absolute joy to drink, and each time I go back i get pulled on a different tangent of flavours. Get it while you can.
Batches will change slightly due to harvest variation/ climate and production. Please contact us for any further information.
