About this mezcal
Siembra Metl Don Mateo Cenizo has flavor that is strongly influenced by the sap from Pine and Oyamel that grows near the agave. While Cupreata is more herbal, Cenizo/Sahuayensis has a spiced, floral bouquet. Strong nut varieties come through on the nose and palate; principally almonds. The texture coats the mouth with burst of fruits, like apples, and soft vanilla notes. Pine remains central, linking to the terroir of Pino Bonito and the tradition of distillation in the Vieyra family.
Siembra Metl Mezcal
Siembra Metl Don Mateo is mostly produced by Emilio Vieyra in Pino Bonito, Michoacán. Emilio’s distilling practices go back 5 generations. The Vieyra family cultivates their agaves and produces their spirit between the Rio Balsas basin and the Eje Neo-volcanico de la Sierra Madre del Sur. The fields are at an average of 7,500 ft and the Vinata where the spirit is roasted, macerated, fermented, and distilled sits at 7,000 ft. Check your bottle for details as they tend to vary slightly from batch to batch. The Siembra Metl brand also features some rare special edition releases from other producers, and they bottle tequila under the renowned Siembra Azul and Siembra Valles labels.
