About Mestizo Mezcal Añejo"Mestizo" is a word of Latin origin that was used by the Spanish in reference to the mixing of indigenous Mexicans and Europeans. It's a suitable name for a mezcal since the famous Mexican spirit combines the ancient indigenous drink known as "mexcalli" with the alambique distillation methods that were brought to Mexico from Spain.
Mestizo mezcal is produced in the village of Santiago Matatlán using artisanal methods that have been in use for more than 4 centuries. The agaves take between 8 and 10 years to fully mature, which is when the piñas (hearts) of the plants are harvested by the jimadores using machetes. The piñas are then baked in a stone-lined fire pit that is covered with a carpet made from plant fibers and maguey leaves, and a layer of dirt. After 3 to 5 days of cooking, the caramelized piñas are chopped and ground in a horse-pulled mill. Water is added to the roasted bagazo that is left to ferment naturally for 8 to 15 days. Finally, the liquid is distilled twice using an alambique (copper pot) still.
Thus produced, the handcrafted mezcal is distinctive, complex, and aromatic. Currently, there are 3 Mestizo mezcals in their lineup: the unaged Joven, the Reposado, and the Añejo. Crafted with 100% espadin agave, the Añejo is aged for 16 months in new American white oak, before being bottled at 80 proof. The finished mezcal is rich with caramel, agave, and oak notes that linger through the smooth finish.
