Montelobos Mezcal Espadin
Montelobos embraces the traditional methods of producing mezcal, focusing on sustainability. The Espadin agaves used in this expression are cultivated organically and the finished product has a perfect balance of the 4 basic mezcal flavors.
Montelobos was founded in 2011 by Iván Saldaña, a molecular plant biologist and distiller who used to work with two mezcal-producing families in Oaxaca and Puebla, Mexico. Partnered with Mezcalero Don Abel Lopez, they produce mezcal the artisanal way, abiding tradition and with sustainability in mind. They only use cultivated agaves that are grown organically, without any pesticides or herbicides. They also compost most of their waste and have improved the design of their palenque to minimize environmental impact. Montelobos or "Wolf Mountain" are partnered with the Wolf Conservation Center, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to the conservation of wolves.
Montelobos Mezcal Espadin is crafted from organically cultivated Espadin agaves in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca. The agaves are cooked in underground stone-pit ovens using local firewood, then milled using a traditional mule-pulled tahona mill. The wild fermentation takes place in open-air pine wood vats, before the collected liquid is distilled using wood-fired copper-pot stills. The resulting spirit achieves a perfect balance of the 4 mezcal flavors: green agave, cooked agave, smoke, and wild fermentation.
