About this mezcal
Bozal Ibérico is made with Maguey Espadin, Mexicano, and Tobasiche in Rio de Ejutla, Oaxaca. This Ibérico recipe is typically only produced in small batches for ceremonial and festive purposes. First the agave are cooked in an underground oven, then milled and fermented, and finally distilled once in a copper pot still. Before the second and final distillation, a piece of seasoned ham/pork is hung in the still and aromatic herbs, spices, and seasonal fruits are added into the distillate.
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.
