About Producer Mezcal Ensamble
The Producer's main goal is to craft versatile mezcal that would appeal to a wide range of spirits lovers. The name was chosen as an homage to all those who create and inspire, invoking passion and quality. It is the embodiment of patience, commitment, and refinement, with minimalist bottles and labels akin to those one would find in Oaxaca, Mexico ― the birthplace of the famous spirit.
It's the rich yet humble history of the spirit that The Producer draws from. This means that traditional methods are employed, including donkey-drawn stone mills, earth ovens, and copper pot stills. The agaves are selected by hand to be harvested by the palenqueros, removing the leaves to expose the piña (heart) of the plant. The hearts are then quartered and cooked for up to 3 days in earthen pits, covered with large leaves, rocks, and soil. The cooked piñas are then crushed and the fermentation process begins. After up to 2 weeks, the liquid is distilled.
The Producer Ensamble mezcal is crafted with 2 types of agave: the espadin and cuishe. The first take 6 years to mature, the second 9. Crafted at Tlacolula de Matamoros under the watchful eye of Maestro Mezcalero Erasto Martinez, the agaves are crushed using a stone tahona, ferment for 8 days, and are distilled using a copper pot still, resulting in a subtly smoky, vegetal, mineral, and floral 80.4-proof expression.
