About this mezcal

Hacienda de Bañuelos Zacatecas is produced using Blue Weber agave in the state of Zacatecas. Zacatecas is just north of Jalisco with a long history of agave distillation. This mezcal has some similar characteristics to tequila due to its use of Blue Weber agave and steam cooking but the wild fermentation and distinct minerality trait of Zacatecas sets it apart. The agaves are cooked for 24 hours in a stainless steel autoclave and crushed with a roller mill. Next, it is naturally fermented with wild yeasts and natural spring water; no additives or accelerators are used. It is double distilled in an alembic still.

Hacienda de Bañuelos

Hacienda de Bañuelos was founded in 1915 and is a fourth generation taberna (distillery). The Bañuelos family is leading the revival of mezcal production in the Mexican state of Zacatecas which is immediately to the north of Jalisco. Southern Zacatecas has a particular mineral driven terroir that shines in all of the Hacienda de Bañuelos expressions.

This one has a lot going on, funky, lactic, sweet, salty. I only had an ounce to taste so I’m sure if I had more I would taste even more flavors. Brown sugar, sour milk, cinnamon, milk chocolate, sea salt, wint o green lifesavers. A unique expression of Agave Azul.
