Cruz De Fuego Mezcal Cirial (750 ml)

About This Item

The Cruz De Fuego brand was launched in 2015 and was immediately awarded the distinction of best-tasting mezcal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. It is produced at Productores Del Buen Agave, a certified mezcal artisanal palenque; in other words, there are no automated processes throughout production. Margarita Blas and Carlos Mendez, mother-and-son team, actively work to protect the traditions behind
artisanal mezcal-making, and each expression follows the same production process: cooked in conical (underground) ovens, open-air fermentation, milling by tahona-wheel, and copper distillation, twice distilled.

Maestra mezcalera Margarita Blas and her son used only older examples of the tall Agave karwinskii subspecies known as Cirial to make this unique batch. While most karwinskii reach maturity somewhere between 12 and 18 years, the agave employed here range from 18 to 22. Dense with mature sugar and fiber and a complexity that speaks to its age, this mezcal offers fascinating structure. A contemplative journey from bold fruit to dry heat, with a deep earthy finish. 47% ABV.
