About Zignum Mezcal Reposado
Mezcal, a spirit that can be distilled from more than 14 known agaves, has been around for more than 400 years. Due to its designation of origin, it can only be produced in 9 states of Mexico, the most representative being Oaxaca.
Situated in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico, Casa Armando Guillermo Prieto is the leading mezcal distillery in Mexico, based on five generations of experience, a rich cultural heritage and a great love for Oaxaca. It is strictly committed to sustainable production with its own animal-cruelty free Método Verde sustainability program and Clean Industry certificate by the Mexican Ministry. It is also a Kosher certified distillery with its own wastewater treatment plan, rainwater collecting system and solar panels. The CAGP's mission is to preserve Oaxaca's natural environment for generations to come. Their three Mezcal brands are El Recuerdo Mezcal, SEÑORÍO Mezcal and Zignum Mezcal, all of them in the top 10 most sold and recognized brands in Mexico.
Zignum means "the tip of the spear". Celebrated as a smooth, refined mezcal, Maestro Mezcaleor follows an eco-friendly approach from field to bottle to produce Zignum Mezcal. The production of mezcal begins once the agave plant is ready for harvest and its piñas or agave hearts are shaved. These are then cooked, ground and fermented. After the alcohol obtained is distilled, it can rest in wooden barrels. For Zignum Reposado, this means ageing American white oak barrels for at least 8 months. It boasts added complexity and character as its maturation period exceeds the required minimum time. Garnering many accolades, including the 2017 Gold Sip Award, this excellent example of a fine mezcal features honey, vanilla and caramel notes, which are to be enjoyed neat or in a spirit-forward cocktail.
