About this mezcal
Zignum Reposado is aged 9 months in new medium toasted American oak barrels. The agave used in this mezcal are not smoked, so it will not have a smokey character. It has a light body with notes of raisins, banana, and vanilla.
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.
