About this mezcal
Zacbe Joven is made with maguey Espadin and Cirial in San Agustín Amatengo, Oaxaca. Maestro Mezcalero Apolonio Ramirez Cruz produces this mezcal traditionally, cooking the agave in an underground pit oven, milling the cooked agave by ox-drawn tahona, fermenting with open air yeasts, and distilling this mezcal in a copper refrescadora still. It has aromas of smoked herbs, grilled tropical fruits, straw and nougat with a medium to full body.
Zacbé Mezcal is made in San Agustín Amatengo, Oaxaca. Their marketing seems to be very focused on the mythical elements of mezcal history and production: “Mezcal Zacbé has only been touched by the water, sun, air and earth that saw the birth of the maguey plant; by the stones, the wood and the fire in the cooking; and it is only fermented with the yeasts of the maguey and the field.”
