TYPES OF MEZCAL


"Hello mezcalero!


This time, I want to talk to you about the different classes of mezcal that exist, each of them possessing characteristics and processes that add a distinct essence to the final product. For example:


- Blanco or joven mezcal is a pure mezcal, and the only external agent allowed is distilled or purified water to adjust the alcohol content. This class of mezcal is born with the aim of preserving the traditions of great mezcal masters like Don Tacho and his sons, Joel and Laurentino. It is under this category that we obtain artisanal products with great flavor, such as Mezcal Mitre.


- There is also mezcal aged in glass, which is stored in glass containers for more than 12 months, either underground or in a controlled environment with light, temperature, and humidity.


- On the other hand, we have reposado mezcal, which stays inside wooden barrels stored in an equally controlled environment for a minimum period of 3 months.


- Similar to reposado mezcal, we have a√Īejo mezcal, which is also stored in wooden barrels. However, the aging period extends to a minimum of 12 months.


- Finally, we have mezcal "abocado con..." and "destilado con..." that add ingredients to enhance flavors, either in the final product like the famous maguey worm or during the distillation process, such as turkey breast, respectively.


I hope you have a better understanding of the different classes of mezcal that exist. Each of them offers a wide range of sensations worth enjoying, and with each sip, you'll find something different. So, we invite you to try them, remembering that the world belongs to the curious.


Cheers, mezcalero!
