Single-batch artisan mezcal based on wild/semi-wild agaves. The brand was conceived by Craft Distillers & developed in collaboration with Destileria Los Danzantes. Craft-method distillation is what we believe in. Great product deserves an audience. Most of the best mezcal distillers produce tiny batches. The only way to keep this wonderful process going is by making it more widely available.

MEZCALERO NO. 24

Hand-distilled October 2016 by Don Baltazar Cruz Gonzales in San Luis del Rio from wild tepextate (agave marmorata) and hillside espadín (agave angustifolia). San Luis gets hot, and this espadín is fruity and soft, perfect backdrop for the intense tepeztate. 768 bottles.  (750ml/ 46.4% abv)

RSP $110

 

MEZCALERO NO. 25

MEZCALERO SPECIAL NO. 5

An ensamble (blended at roasting) of wild cenizo (agave durangensis) and 60% espadín (agave angustifolia), hand-distilled May 2019 by Don Rubén Solis Lozano in La Constancia, Durango. The upland agaves were wood-roasted, crushed by hand, fermented in a wood-covered underground pit using wild yeasts, double distilled in a 300-liter copper potstill, and bottled in August of 2019. The tiny cenizo is notoriously difficult to distill. Beautifully balanced: the calm rich espadín is perfect backdrop to the feral intensity of the wild cenizo.  960 bottles. (750m/l 47% abv)
