About Los Siete Misterios Doba-Yej Mezcal
Mezcal Los Siete Misterios was born in 2010 after a trip, where the brand founders were inspired by the passion, traditions and culture of Mexico that go into making this distilled spirit. With the vision of preserving the ancient traditions of mezcal making, the brand works with some of the best mezcaleros and the Oaxacan communities to offer the finest product. These spirits are hand-crafted in limited batches, and only using traditional methods, safeguarding the heritage of the craft. The brand specializes in young mezcal of varying alcoholic content, which must be made only using 100% natural agave sugars that come from ripe plants.
Every small detail counts when making the highest quality mezcals, and the process starts with selecting the mature agave plants for harvesting. The agave hearts are cooked in underground ovens over wood fire for three to five days, and then cut into small pieces with a machete, and crushed manually or in a traditional mill pulled by a horse. The ground agave is left in huge wooden barrels to ferment naturally, with no yeast added, and the result is distilled twice in a traditional pot still. Los Siete Misterios’ mezcaleros produce a wide range of mezcals, which are divided into two lines, artisanal mezcal, which is distilled in copper pot stills, and ancestral, which is made using traditional clay pot stills.
Doba-Yej is the first Los Siete Misterios mezcal distilled in a copper still. This mezcal was made with the aim of creating a balanced expression that can be enjoyed straight or in a cocktail. Doba-Yej is Zapotec for agave Espadin. Each batch of this artisanal mezcal is made by a different mezcalero, and may come from either Santiago Matatlan or San Luis del Rio. The details about producer are available on each bottle.
