About this mezcal

El Tinieblo Montana is made with Maguey Rojo (Agave montana). The agaves are cooked in an earthen pit, crushed with a tahona, and the fermented in open air wooden vats. Next, the spirit is doubled-distilled in copper stills.

El Tinieblo Mezcal

El Tinieblo is a sustainability-first artisanal mezcal brand and a unique brand in that they are completely self-reliant. Rancho El Tinieblo is a 9,000 acre farm in the state of Tamaulipas where El Tinieblo grows their agave with no pesticides or insecticides. For every agave harvested, El Tinieblo plants 25 new agaves. The mezcal is produced using traditional methods and then bottled in 100% recycled glass hand-blown bottles. The ranch has been producing spirits since 1865 and has, for the most part, remained unchanged. In 1998, it came under the ownership of Alfredo Perez Salinas and the spirits began being marketed under the new brand and the Tinieblo name. The one major change that occurred was the introduction of exotic African animals such as zebras, wildebeest, oryx, water buffalo and watusi, who now roam the ranch.

In 2019, the brand raised money via the StartEngine platform at a $7.5 million pre-money valuation.

This one is a monster. The nose is super fragrant (like an A. Inaequidens or a Lamparillo or like a funky Tepeztate), and with a full mouth-feel. Super creamy with sweet and funky fruity, intoxicating notes. I wish I had better adjectives, but for my first a.Montana, I’ll definitely be searching out more of these expressions! This was a 2oz taster I found at an amazing speakeasy in Queretaro…and for 150 pesos this seemed like the deal of a lifetime, especially considering that a bottle sells in the States for $450+ USD. No batch number, as I was too busy throughly enjoying my copita.
