About this mezcal
Zignum Añejo Cristalino is made using Maguey Espadín (Agave angustifolia) and then aged for 24 months in new French Oak barrels. Next, a filtering process removes the barrel-aged color. According the the brand, the production process has a low environmental impact. The Método Verde distillery program involves a wastewater treatment facility, the use of solar energy, being animal cruelty free, and greenhouses where Espadín is grown from the seed. Zignum is part of the Mezcales Casa Armando portfolio.
Casa Armando Guillermo Prieto (AGP), where Zignum is made, is the largest distillery in Oaxaca. Their main goal is to create and commercialize agave distillates using the most advanced industrial technology. Rather than roasting their agave in pit ovens, their agave is cooked in an industrial autoclave that does not impart the smoke that is found in mezcal made at smaller traditional operations.
