Derrumbes San Luis Potosí is an incredible example of a very particular style of mezcal crafted in the high altitude Central Mexican Plateau, in the state of San Luis Potosí.
Made from the region's wild agave Salmiana, it gives the mezcal a unique, vibrant flavour. Despite its abundance, this agave has a very low yield, needing up to four times as much to create an equal amount of spirit when compared to the blue agave used in the tequila region. Grown in calcareous soils, this mezcal terrifically showcases its terroir characteristics, with chalky notes very evident in the flavour profile.
Produced in an old traditional hacienda, above ground ovens known as hornos are used to cook the agave which mean their mezcal is not smoky. Once cooked, the agave is crushed by a tahona, fermented naturally with wild yeast, twice-distilled in small copper pot.
43.5% / 700ml
Created from high altitude agave grown on the lands of Master Tequilero, Arq. Enrique Fonseca, near Atotonilco in the highlands. Cooked, crushed, fermented, and distilled at his ABV Tequileña distillery in the town of Tequila. No immature agave, no non-agave fermentation sugars, no diffuser, and no additives were used in the production of this tequila.
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.
