About this mezcal

Corte Vetusto Tobalá is handmade by fourth generation maestro mezcalero Juan Carlos Gonzalez Diaz using 100% wild agave tobala. This joven mezcal is distilled to proof at 42% ABV. This mezcal is crushed with a tahona and then naturally fermented. The first distillation in a 250 liter copper and the second distillation in a 70 liter clay pot still.

Corte Vetusto

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.

  • Overall:

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.
