About this mezcal

Mezcal Marquéz Plata from Jaral de Berrio is a joven mezcal produced in the state of Guanajuato using agave Salmiana. 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 Mezcal

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.

Aromas of unsweet tea. The palate has lots of water but is also very sweet, like birthday cake with other notes of tika masala, tobacco, and cake frosting.

This mezcal is produced like a tequila and doesn’t have any smoke flavors. There are some notes of vanilla bean, whipped cream, and lemon custard. It’s very middle of the road. Not bad. Not amazing. Fun to try a mezcal from Guanajuato. Not lot number. Tastes like a tequila. Agave Salmiana can have some wild and funky flavors in San Luis Potosí mezcals but those aren’t present here.
