Sacacuento Anejo has light wisps of peat and heather, and a touch of smokey caramel. The barrel aging of this mezcal gives it a caramel color and taste.

About this mezcal
Sacacuento Anejo is made with estate-grown agave Espadin. This is an aged version of their Joven mezcal. On the palate, this has notes of soft clay with baked agave and singed caramel. The finish is a blend of vanilla, oatmeal, and burnt hemp
Sacacuento Mezcal has it’s own 150-acre agave ranch named Rancho Buenaventura, which is located approximately 10 minutes south of the City of Nochixtlan, Oaxaca. The agave ranch has approximately 50,000 agave Espadin and 1,000 agave Tobala currently growing. Mezcal production on the ranch began in 1913 when Emilio Maldonado began making mezcal from the wild agave Espadin that grew among other crops. He sold his mezcal to travelers who often passed through the ranch. As he sat with the travelers and shared the mezcal, they would tell great stories. Those who told the best stories were called “Sacacuento.” Today, the ranch and mezcal brand are owned and operated by Emilio’s granddaughter, Claudia Favila and her husband Rudy Favila.
