5 Sentidos Sierra Negra Mezcal

5 Sentidos Sierra Negra Mezcal

Regular price $160.00

Situated high in the Sierra Norte mountain range of Oaxaca, master distiller Alberto Martinez cultivates and distils the massive, rare agave Sierra Negra with his son-in-law Reynaldo. Apart from the use of clay pot stills, Alberto and Reynaldo’s process is especially unique because of their use of “tepehuaje” bark in their fermentations. The duo adds this unusual ingredient as a safeguard against a failed fermentation: their village sits at a high altitude, where ambient fermentation can stall without the use of this tasty, organic catalyst. This technique is virtually unheard of outside of their village, making their mezcals a unique representation of a hyper-local technique. Citrus peel, eucalyptus, stone fruit and the recognisable scent of grandma’s basement on the notes with the pallet showing currants, sweet herbs, dusty, medium acidity with pronounced minerality. - Agave Lux (Importer)
