About this mezcal
Bozal Borrego is a limited release. This mezcal is made with wild maguey Castilla, which is a close relative to maguey Espadin. Similar to a Pechuga, during the second distillation, a leg of lamb, in addition to seasonal wild fruits and grains harvested from the local market, are suspended inside the bottom of the still in a basket. These wild fruits include strawberries, apples and pineapple, while additional ingredients consist of pecans and ginger. This mezcal is heavily viscous. It is fruity, but balanced with notes of citrus and finish of smoked lamb.
Mezcal Bozal is a craft, artisan, handmade Mezcal. They celebrate the wild side of the Mezcal world and the wild agave used to produce such rich spirits. They use agave from the steep precarious hillsides of Oaxaca and Guerrero that are indigenous to the region. These varietals produce flavors that are exotically intense, with rich earth tones and savory smokiness. From the heart of the maguey these flavors are traditionally extracted to produce mezcal that is wildly refined.
