About this mezcal

This mezcal is produced in Puebla using cultivated agave Tobala. Montelobos Mezcal founder, Iván Saldaña, met the Alva family in Puebla who has been growing agave Tobala for over 15 years. Agave Tobala has been exploited since the mezcal boom began and from the very beginning, Montelobos committed to only use sustainable agave that is 100% cultivated without exploiting wild maguey. Additionally, Montelobos does not utilize pesticides or herbicides when farming agaves. This mezcal has aromas of lemon, green pepper and pear. On the palate, there are notes of citrus, basil, roasted fig, macadamia, and truffle.

Montelobos Mezcal

Montelobos has business ties to William Grant & Sons, the makers of scotch whisky. Iván Saldaña, who has a background in molecular plant biology, founded Montelobos Mezcal. Saldaña worked with two mezcal-producing families in Oaxaca and Puebla. The mezcal is popular inside Mexico and is also exported. Montelobos Mezcal is committed to sustainability and has pledged to never use wild agaves in their mezcal production.

In October 2019, Montelobos was acquired by Campari (Davide Campari-Milano SpA). The acquisition also included Ancho Reyes chili liqueur, for a combined total of $35.7 million USD.

Lot RD2761. I was pleasantly surprised by this, super smooth, little bit of fruit and hardly any bite. Was on a quest to try some new arroquenos and got persuaded into this one.
