About this mezcal
Zignum Anejo is aged 18 months in new French oak barrels. This aging gives it strong notes of caramel, vanilla, and wood. The agave used to make this mezcal are not smoked. They are steam-cooked, giving this mezcal a very different flavor.
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.
