About this mezcal

La Luna Ensamble is crafted with two agaves that are native to the state of Michoacan. Many do not realize that Michoacan is included in the Denomination of Origin for Tequila. Due to this, Tequilana Blue Weber agave is abundantly grown in the vibrant soils of Michoacan. This ensamble is 70% Cupreata and 30% Tequilana.  The cooked agave is milled by hand and naturally fermented in open-air  wooden vats before being double distilled in a copper and pinewood Tarascan still. Due to the artisinal nature of this mezcal, the ABV will vary by batch.

La Luna Mezcal

La Luna Mezcal is made in Etucuaro, Michoacan. Tucked away in this mountainous region is the municipality of Villa Madero, which is the home to the Perez Escot family and Destiladora Las Azucenas.  The family has been traditionally crafting mezcal on the same property since 1910 and is currently on their 4th generation of mezcaleros with Isidro Perez Escot training his son Amador at the moment.

  • Overall:

Lote 1. ABV of 45.77%. Bottle #55. This one smells like new basketballs, like fresh rubber, but in a really nice, non-synthetic way. It’s interesting that something so organic and natural could taste and smell like this. It’s really something special. At first sip, I thought that I liked the La Luna Cupreata more, but the complexity of this mezcal grew on me. It’s slightly sweet with some nice hints of pepper and all spice. I’ve never seen a Cupreata/Tequilana ensamble before and was stoked to find this. Highly recommended!
