About this mezcal
Salvación Tobasiche is made with mature wild maguey Tobasiche which is very scarce and takes between 9 to 10 years for maturity. Traditional mills, firewood, underground pit-smoking, natural fermentation in small wooden vats and distillation in copper and clay alembics, gives this mezcal a clean, yet powerful character. It is balanced with the aroma of earth and rain. The taste is herbal, sweet and smoky with light floral notes.
The agaves used in Salvación Mezcal are harvested by hand and then roasted in an earthen pit at a 150 year old distillery. The roasted agaves are then crushed by a horse-drawn tahona. Salvación Mezcal is marketed as an ultra-premium artisanal mezcal. It is produced and bottled in Oaxaca, Mexico.
