Lagrimas de Dolores Sierreño is another one of the latest releases in the LDD range and one of the latest Agaves to be recognised by authorities for the production of Mezcal.
Locally know simply as "Maguey" Sierreño Agave comes from the high Sierra of Tepehuanes,(hence the name). This Agave grows in the wild at an altitude of 2590 mts above sea level, and can take up to twelve years to fully mature. Tepehuanes is of the least known mezcal-producing regions but it is i definitely one of our favourites.
