About this mezcal
Tomas Artesanal Tepeztate is made with wild maguey Tepeztate in Santa Ana Del Rio, Oaxaca. There are about 500 citizens of this small community and the majority are involved in the production of agave and mezcal. The agave used in this mezcal are cooked in a traditional pit oven, milled by horse-drawn tahona, and double distilled in a copper alembique still.
Tomas Artesanal is named after the familiar version of the Spanish verb tomar. People in Mexico often say Tomo cerveza, meaning I drink (or take) beer or tomas cerveza? meaning you drink beer? Tomas Artesanal literally translates to you drink craft which is the brand’s invitation to the consumer.
