This mezcal is produced in Puebla using cultivated maguey Tobala. Montelobos Mezcal founder, Iván Saldaña, met the Alva family in Puebla who has been growing maguey Tobala for over 15 years. Maguey Tobala has been exploited since the mezcal boom began and from the very beginning, Montelobos committed to only use sustainable agave that is 100% cultivated without exploiting wild maguey. Additionally, Montelobos does not utilize pesticides or herbicides when farming agaves. This mezcal has aromas of lemon, green pepper and pear. On the palate, there are notes of citrus, basil, roasted fig, macadamia, and truffle.
Made in Puebla, Mexico
Bozal Borrego is a limited release. This mezcal is made with wild agave Castilla, which is a close relative to agave Espadin. Similar to a Pechuga, during the second distillation, a leg of lamb, in addition to seasonal wild fruits and grains harvested from the local market, are suspended inside the bottom of the still in a basket. These wild fruits include strawberries, apples and pineapple, while additional ingredients consist of pecans and ginger. This mezcal is heavily viscous. It is fruity, but balanced with notes of citrus and finish of smoked lamb.

Código 1530 Rosa begins with the purity of the Blanco, which is then
gently rested for 1 month in uncharred, French White Oak barrels,
which have held the best cabernet wine in Napa Valley. The result is a
refined spirit that is as beautiful in color as it is on the palate. It is
delicious when sipped on its own or enjoyed in a cocktail. The Rosa has
rested just long enough in our fine cabernet barrels to enrich the natural agave
juice, yet not too long to prevent overpowering its delicate floral notes.
Código 1530 Rosa is best enjoyed on ice, in a Rosa Martini or in a fresh Rosa Margarita.
Corralejo Blanco is a 100% blue agave tequila bottled straight from the still at 38%. It's a pure distillation of fruity agave creating a rich and characterful spirit despite its lack of aging.
