About this mezcal

Mezcal Carreño Ensamble 7 is a unique ensamble produced by Aureliano Hernandez using seven species of maguey: Espadín, Tobalá, Tobasiche, Tepeztate, Coyote, Lumbre, and Cuishe. These seven wild agaves represent the seven sisters of the Carreño family. The agaves are evenly weighed out to have a balance of flavor. Then cooked together in an underground pit oven, milled by tahona, open-air fermented in pine vats, and double distilled in copper stills. Ensamble 7 is both complex and delicate with hints of pineapple.

Carreño Mezcal

Mezcal Carreño began in 1904 with Don Apolonio Carreño, with mezcal that was made from wild agaves that naturally grew on property. The same land was used to grow sugar cane and sold to the family of the largest rum producers in Mexico. Mezcal Carreño has planted over 30,000 agaves since 2017 and creates additional plots every year. The company supports multiple non-profits both in Oaxaca and Arizona in the US. With family both in Oaxaca and Arizona, Mezcal Carreño has been able to share its culture and passion on both sides of the border.

Hot damn! I had to try this bottle after seeing it won SFWSC best in class Mezcal, and was more than satisfied! Delicately nuanced, it expresses hints of pineapple, strawberry, and baking spices.
