About this mezcal

Desolas Mezcal is an artisanally crafted spirit produced from 100% Agave salmiana found in the state of San Luis Potosi, Mexico. Salmiana has low sugar content and thus a lower yield despite its large size. After being crushed with a stone mill, the piñas are cooked in above ground brick ovens instead of an underground pit, resulting in a mezcal with a low smoke aroma. The mash is fermented in stainless steel in order to make a cleaner product with less bacteria. It is then distilled in a copper still. The production methods gives the final product grassy, earthy and agave forward notes.

Desolas is a female-founded, premium mezcal brand that is inspired by traditional time-honored techniques of mezcal production, the artisanal process of crafting the agave spirit, the natural elements of the sun and the land, and a focus on the deliberate journey of creation and discovery.

DeSolas is a light and fresh tasting, low smoke Mezcal. At first, the nose is bright and herbaceous. The flavor is very smooth, complicated but well balanced.

It’s super easy to drink and enjoyable straight up on the rocks or great in a margarita cocktail – my favorite cocktail is a clean cocktail from a cocktail bar and restaurant in Soho, NY that is a combination of Desolas, cucumber & lime.

This is one of my favourite mezcals. It’s super herbal, not very Smokey at all, but just enough. It feels really smooth and easy to drink both on its own and in a cocktail. Taste is very herbal and green, peppery, and fresh. An approachable and unique mezcal.

Very bright and green aromas: Green peppers, fresh asparagus, jalapeno, under-ripe habanero, and a slight touch of cheddar cheese. The palate is also extremely green, a little watery, but not overwhelmingly so. The palate mostly matches the nose with notes of jalapeno cheddar cheese, green bell peppers, cream of asparagus soup, and chalky minerals. This is really enjoyable but not something I’d reach for regularly. It’s 100% worth a taste. Lote MMDN 004? It could be 001 at the end of lote number, but tough to tell. Bottle 3329.
