The Sierra Norte

THE SIERRA NORTE

High in the rugged Sierra Norte of northern Oaxaca state, near the tiny pueblo of San Cristóbal Lachiroag, brothers Edgar and Elisandro Gonzales, the maestros behind Mezcal Tosba, have created a beautiful rhum agricole from local high-mountain sugar cane, using traditional hand methods developed for mezcal. DAKABEND is a superb and supremely artisanal distilled spirit.
