About this mezcal
Machetazo Salmiana is made with wild agave Salmiana in the state of San Luis Potosi, Mexico. The agave Salmiana takes about seven years to reach maturity in desert climates like Charcas. Unlike most mezcal, the agave in this mezcal are not cooked in an underground pit oven. The agave used here are cooked through vaporization instead. The agave are then crushed by tahona, fermented in masonry-stone tubs, and single-distilled in a copper bell still.
Mezcal Machetazo follows traditional mezcal production processes that have been passed down from generation to generation. The brand offers different varieties of mezcal that are produced in three different states in Mexico: Guerrero, Oaxaca and San Luis Potosí. The name Machetazo symbolizes the complexity and labor of the mezcal production process. With a swing of the machete or machetazo, their mezcaleros mark the beginning of the adventure behind the making of this mystical spirit.
