About this mezcal

Jaral de Berrio is a joven mezcal produced in the state of Guanajuato using agave Salmiana. The Jaral De Berrio family was given one of the first official warrants to produce wine & spirits in Mexico. This mezcal is produced in the town of San Felipe Torres Mochas at an elevation of 2,048 meters (6,824 feet). The agaves are steamed in stone ovens and distilled twice in copper pots. This mezcal is a middle road between the spice earthiness of Oaxacan mezcal and the cleaner fruitier flavors common in Tequila.

Jaral de Berrio

The Hacienda del Jaral de Berrio is located in the historic borough of San Felipe Torres Mochas, Guanajuato. Its origins date back to the late 16th century and the production of mezcal since 1764, when it was then known as aguardiente criollo del Jaral, according to bibliographic data and historical stock inventories.

As part of the production process, the Mezcales de la Hacienda Jaral de Berrio are steamed, not smoked, which means that the heart of the agaves are softened with vapor before the grinding process. Smoke is not used in order to avoid flavor contamination and allowing the agave Salmiana notes to be fully present.

  • Overall:

If you’re really into mezcals, this will throw you off. It’s not smokey, and almost indistinguishable from a Blanco tequila. I was very disappointed the first time I purchased this as it was the only “mezcal” carried by my liqour store at the time. Taste wise it’s not terrible, but it ain’t satisfying if you’re looking for the smoke and depth of even a simple Espadin let alone when you get further down the rabbit hole.
