Zignum Silver tastes more like a tequila than a traditional mezcal. It’s made in Tlacolula de Matamoros, Oaxaca at a large, modern production facility.

About this mezcal
Zignum Silver is unaged after distillation. It has slight notes of citrus and sweet green agave. Given it’s production processes, where the agave is steamed rather than smoked or roasted, this mezcal does not have a smoky character like mezcals made in a more traditional setting.
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.
