Montelobos achieves balance and complexity through a bold integration between agave, fermentation notes, and smoke. The company has business ties to William Grant & Sons, the makers of scotch whisky. Iván Saldaña, who has a background in molecular plant biology, is the main force behind Montelobos Mezcal. Saldaña works with two mezcal-producing families in Oaxaca and Puebla. The mezcal is popular inside Mexico and is also exported. Montelobos Mezcal is committed to sustainability and has pledged to never use wild agaves in their mezcal production.
