Please note: Mezcal Verde features a variety of label designs, so your bottle might not match the one in the photo. All the designs are very lovely indeed, but we're afraid we can't guarantee which design you'll get.
Despite its ultra-modern looks, this eye-catching mezcal is produced with the utmost artisanal care and traditional methods. Mezcal Verde dedicated craft distillery opened in the Oaxacan village of Tlacolula in 2017 and is capable of producing 7,000l of batch-distilled mezcal a year.
Mezcal Verde is made from 8-year-old grown Espadin agave. It is cooked using three different types of wood - ocote, red oak and pepper tree - to achieve a complex, balanced flavour profile that makes it work brilliantly in cocktails.
After Tahona stone milling, natural fermentation with its own yeast in ayacahuite pine vats and double distillation in maestro mezcalero Doroteo Garcia's small copper still, it is bottled at 42% ABV.
Every batch of Mezcal Verde features a unique label designed by a contemporary Mexican artist. It is another collaboration aimed at supporting the local culture of the mezcal-producing regions - be it farmers, distillers or artists. And it captures the essence of any good drink - enjoy the moment and have fun together.
Quite sweet with candied nuts and dried fruit, though classic mezcal smokiness develops later on.
