About this mezcal
Apaluz Joven is distilled by mezcalero Antonio Panuco (alias The Tiger) using mature estate-grown agave Durangensis (around 12 years old) in the state of Durango. It is cooked for 3 days in a volcanic stone oven using firewood of huizache, pine and oak. The oven is covered with sacks of ixtle, pine leaf, wet grass, and silt soil from a nearby stream. The cooked plants are hand-mashed with sharp axes before being transferred into oak wood vats to ferment with proprietary yeast and well-water. Later it is distilled in a copper pot still that is covered with a thick piece of pine. This mezcal has smoky notes, aromas of citrus fruits, honey and almonds. Apaluz Mezcal is family-owned and represents three generations of mezcal production.
Apaluz is a 100% Mexican-owned company that is dedicated to the production and marketing of Artisanal Mezcal. Additionally, Apaluz markets products derived from agave, worm and grasshopper salt, liqueurs made from mezcal (including flavors like tamarind, coffee, and mint), and other regional products from Durango.
