Mezcal Palenqueros showcases the craft of different maestro distillers (master distillers) from single palenque's (distilleries) across Oaxaca, Mexico in a range of still proof Mezcales. 1st generation, Maestro distiller Baltazar Cruz has blended cultivated Espadin Agave with Sierra Negra, a wild grown sub-varietal of agave from the Americana family which can take up to 25 years to reach full maturity. The Agaves are harvested at an altitude of 955 meters above sea level before being artesenally crafted into this small-batch Espadin Mezcal. 

A great Mezcal for those looking to explore more of Agave Espadin and its complexity.
