Producer Notes

On the steep precarious hillsides of Oaxaca, Guerrero, and Durango varieties of agave, indigenous to the region, grow wild and are heavily sought after by the local mezcaleros. These varietals produce flavors that are exotically intense, with rich earth tones and savory smokiness. From the heart of the maguey these flavors are traditionally extracted to produce mezcal that is wildly refined. Because we at b o z a l believe that something wild produces a far richer spirit.

Agave
Sacatoro
A subspecies of the Angustifolia family, the Sacatoro agave takes about eight to twelve years to mature and is harvested from the hillsides of Guerrero. Unique in itself, the characteristics of this agave showcase the aromas of wet earth, a rich smokiness on the mid-palate, and a finish reminiscent of wild flowers.
Taste
Slight sweetness on the nose with a soft mineral scent of river rock. An initially viscous mouthfeel leads to a savory palate with flavors of sage, fennel and creamed corn. The finish is lasting with a brined salinity and effervescence.
