About this mezcal
Mestizo Reposado is aged for 8 months in white oak barrels. This artisinal mezcal is the middle ground between the unaged Mestizo Joven and the longer-aged Mestizo Anejo. The Mestizo Reposado is the Winner of the Gold Medal at the 13th Annual San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
The name Mestizo is a one-word description of how mezcal was created. Mestizo originates from the Latin mixticĭus, meaning mixed, and was used by the Spanish to refer to the mixing of the European and indigenous Mexican people. Mezcal is a fusion between the ancient beverage mexcalli, produced by the indigenous tribes of Mexico, and the alambique distillation process introduced to the Spanish by the Moors and subsequently brought by the Spanish to the indigenous civilization of the American colonies. Mezcal is thus the first Mestizo spirit of America. The Mestizo brand has the good fortune of being NOM 002X, meaning that it was the second distillery registered for the production of mezcal.
