It shows apples, cherry and hintsof smoke and minerals.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 98 points - A sweet, mellow whiff of apples gives way to a round, creamy mouthful. Vegetal and spicy, it shows plenty of fruit character and an earthy minerality. The smoke is subtle on the finish. (Apr 2016)
Mezcales de Leyenda was founded by Jaun Jesus Lozoya and Cesar Gonzalez Hermosillo, holding long standing relationships with artisanal mescal producers from different regions in Mexico.
In 2009 Pedro Ochoa and New York based chef Danny Mena joined Mezcales de Leyenda to educate the public on mezcal as a category.
Each silver, unblended mezcal was chosen based on typicity and quality and is distilled in small batches by local families. The agave was roasted in stone pits covered with lava rocks, after which it fermented for about four days in wood vats. It was then distilled in copper pot stills. All the wild agave used to produce Mezcales de Leyenda is grown in a sustainable method and certified organic by the USDA and CCOF (California Certified Organic Farmers).
