Derrumbes San Luis Potosi expression is a Mezcal from the dessert produced exclusively from the extensive wild agave Salmiana Crassispina that grows naturally in the High Plateau of San Luis Potosi. With not enough trees for wood to support the mezcal production, Maestro mezcalero Manuel Perez forages for dry Salmiana leaves and quiotes to use as fuel for the cooking process. The result is an incredibly unique Mezcal that reflects the flavors of its surroundings like no other. This floral and herbaceous Mezcal from the village of Charcas has just the right touch of sweetness to balance its delicate intensity.
Each expression from the Mezcal Derrumbes range represents various Mezcal producing states throughout Mexico. Each state was chosen to highlight the traditions, terroir and style of the region where it was made.
