Corte Vetusto Mezcal
Corte Vetusto mezcal is hand-crafted by Juan Carlos Gonzalez Diaz, a 4th generation Zapotec Maestro Mezcalero. The art of mezcal making was passed down through the generations since his great grandfather, Don Mauro. The name of the brand Corte Vetusto means “the ancient cut” and comes from an old story about a master mezcalero’s desire to create a cut of mezcal so divine that it invokes the spirit of generations before him. That sacred distillation of earth, fire and history is the Corte Vetusto.

Super long finish. Smokey, earthy and definitely worth your time.
Floral / blossom on the nose with hints of tropical fruit. Mineral & slightly earthy flavour (earth after it just starts to rain) and smoke that’s like a camp fire from the night before. Definitely worth trying.
Lot: TOB-0418 Bottle: 10 / 360 … cooked with mesquite wood … the mesquite starts out on the nose and stays with this mezcal through the palate. Flavors of black pepper and mint join the roast. Pleasant long finish … I did not expect to enjoy a mesquite based mezcal as much as I did. Enjoyed neat and worthy of your time.
This is really tasty. Smoky and earthy. Notes of burnt orange, celery, and black pepper. Slightly buttery with a hint of copper. It’s a bit smokier than I prefer most of my mezcals, but this is definitely worth trying.
