Derrumbes Mezcal Michoacan...$69.99 / 750ml
The second expression of Derrumbes is an elegant combination of Michoacán’s iconic Chino and Alto agaves and its unique ancestral distillation technique. Chino (Cupreata) brings mature fruit notes while Alto (Ineaquidens) complements with a delicate herbaceous character that resembles the pine forests that surround it. It is fermented under the red clay floor of the taberna in pinewood lined pits to protect it from low temperatures to be then distilled in Michoacán’s own Philippine-style stills made of wood staves and copper over direct flame. This exquisite sensorial experience comes from renowned maestro Guadalupe Perez from the village of Tzitzio.
