About this mezcal

Marca Negra Sierra Negra is made with the mighty maguey Sierra Negra (Agave Americana) in San Luis del Rio, Tlacolula, Oaxaca. This mezcal is produced by Don Baltazar Cruz Gomez using 100% wild agaves. This mezcalero, who goes by “Don Balta”, produces mezcal for many other brands that are exported to the US. The brand Mezcalero released Mezcalero No. 15, which is also an maguey Sierra Negra mezcal from Don Baltazar.

Marca Negra Mezcal

Mezcal Marca Negra is made for all who wish to explore and embrace the ancient traditions of true mezcal. The handprint on the bottle represents the tireless work of the master distillers and the ancient knowledge that marks each and every batch. Marca Negra seeks the purest and most diverse expressions of this fantastic spirit, wherever they made be found. Due to limited batch production, the product line changes constantly. New mezcal varieties are created while others cease to exist. Mezcal Marca Negra is 48% ABV or higher because the mezcal is bottled at the alcohol level preferred by the maestro mezcaleros. Check your bottles for details about each specific batch.

46.2%. Smells very clean with hints of cleaning agents: vinegar, bleach, lemon, pine. The palate is a bit spiny as well. Notes of charcoal, dried fish, nori, iodine, and slate. It’s a little hot up front but rounds out with a vanilla-cherry finish. There’s a numbing, cotton-like factor that lingers in the mouth long after.
