About this mezcal

El Mero Mero Tepextate is made with wild agave Tepextate that take 20-22 years to reach maturity. The agave used in this mezcal are crushed by tahona, fermented in Encino Oak tubs, and distilled in copper. Due to the rough conditions in the regions, the agave has high sugar content, which can translate to differences in flavor and profile. Typical batches of El Mero Mero Tepextate range from 125-200 bottles.

El Mero Mero Mezcal

El Mero Mero considers itself "The Mezcalero's Mezcal" and began operations in 2011. All production is overseen by mezcalero Justino Garcia Cruz. The bottle label is designed by Carlos Zerpa, one of the most important Latin American contemporary artists. Senor Cruz and the surrounding mezcaleros are starting to slowly and carefully cultivate agave Tobala and Tepextate in order to develop more sustainable production practices.

This is the first expression of Justino Garcia Cruz I’ve had the pleasure of tasting, it does not disappoint! I get a bit of honey mint and Serrano chili on the nose with a touch of tobacco.This tep is high minerality. The mouthfeel is soft.. candied Serrano & mint on the front end with leather in the mid palate and soft honeysuckle like finish.. I am looking forward to trying the Tobala and Espadin
