About this mezcal
Creyente Joven is made with agave Espadin. It’s a blend of two different mezcals from Tlacolula and Yautepec, Oaxaca. The two mezcals are produced traditionally, but separately. Following the distillation process, the mezcals from both regions are blended together before bottling. The mezcal has a smoky aroma, with notes of lemon peal, black pepper, and ripe mango.
Mezcal Creyente was launched in the summer of 2016 by the tequila giant José Cuervo. They currently market a single blended mezcal to the international market. Creyente means “believer” in Spanish, as the brand was founded on the belief that anything is possible.
