About this mezcal
Nacional 1931 is made with wild maguey Tobala in Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca. Maestro Mezcalero Celso Martinez Lopez uses traditional mezcal production methods and double-distills this mezcal in a small copper still. This is the brand’s flagship mezcal expression. It commemorates the devastating earthquake that struck the city of Oaxaca in 1931.
Mezcal Nacional is produced utilizing strictly traditional methods, which include baking agave piñas in traditional stone ovens, fermentation in open air wooden vats, and double distillation in copper stills, all under the careful direction of Maestro Mezcalero Celso. Mezcal Nacional is keenly aware that their ability to continue to provide mezcal is inextricably linked to the sustainability of the agave itself. In order to ensure the ability to continue to produce premium quality mezcales from the best agaves, they have begun planting wild agave as part of their reforestation efforts.

Don Celso stepped up to the plate with this one. Nose, palate and finish are very well balanced. Found this little gem at Mezcalito in SF (Thank you Jacob). Can’t wait to get home and try his La Jicarita Pechuga.
