Bozal Cuixe Mezcal, 750mL
Tequila and mezcal are produced in different states of Mexico (though there is overlap). Tequila can only be made, by law, with one variety of agave: the Blue Agave. Mezcal can be made with upwards of 30 varieties of agave, though most are made with the Agave Espadin.
Bozal Cuixe is made with 100% wild agave Cuixe in San Luis Amatlan, Oaxaca. Due to the unusual structure of this agave, and it containing a firmer piña, the agave Cuixe can be difficult to harvest and to work with in general. This mezcal has intense citrus aromas and strong minerality. It’s rather dry on the palate with notes of rich tropical fruit.
