About this mezcal
Ultramundo Lamparillo from Benjamín Ávila is milled by hand with an ax. The agaves are then fermented with wild, ambient yeast in open-air, in-ground, oak-lined wells for two to four days. Once fermented, the agave is distilled twice in a wood-fired copper pot with an oak wood condenser and a copper coil.
Ultramundo Mezcal is an agroforestry project. They’re attempting to foster a balanced relationship with nature through craft spirits, specifically artisanal mezcal, using the agaves from their 24,000-acre ranch in Mapimí, Durango. They leave at least 20% of the agaves that reach maturity to do what they do naturally: go to seed and regenerate their population.

Batch LBE-001. Notes of black pepper, menthol, grapefruit, spearmint, and tropical fruit punch. The palate has notes of chili-mango, black pepper, Ben & Jerry’s Mint Chocolate Cookie ice cream, P-funk cigarettes, and freshly squeezed lime. This is rich and incredibly full. Mezcal from Durango is often too lactic for my palate, but this is an exception. It’s crisp and clean.
