Machetazo Mezcal

Machetazo Mezcal San Luis Potosi Salmiana....$43.99
Agave Salmiana / Maguey Verde
45% Alc. 90 PROOF
Grown in calcareous soils in Central Mexican plateau in the state of San Luis Potosí, Agave Salmiana “Green Giant” takes 8 years to reach maturity. The semi-arid climate of the region and wild agave gives way to lively flavors of crisp vegetation and citrus. The production process of our Mezcal Machetazo Salmiana 45% differs from the common cooking because these piñas are cooked through vaporization above ground in ovens allowing the flavor not to be smoky. The sloped construction of the distillery’s floor ensures consistent fluidity as the liquid from the cooked agaves trickles down through by way of gravity.

Machetazo Mezcal Espadin....$43.99
45% Alc. 90 PROOF
Agave Angustifolia / Espadin native to the state of Oaxaca, is the most commonly used agave in mezcal due to its properties of high production, sugars, weight and volume. Notes of this agave vary depending on the region of Oaxaca it is cultivated from. Our Mezcal Machetazo Espadin 45% has floral and fruit note presence with a light silky texture. These tones are influenced by the sub-tropical climate where the distillery is located. The Espadin Agaves reaches maturity and an ideal sugar concentration between 8-12 years and are cooked in an earthen oven releasing aromas of roasted fruit.
