Mezcal Marqués is produced at the historic Hacienda Jaral de Berrio in the state of Guanjuato. In 1764, the King of Spain granted Marquis Jaral de Barrio permission to make one of "New Spain's" first distillates at the hacienda. Marqués Reposado is made with wild salmiana agave harvested at 8 years, baked in clay ovens, crushed by tahona and distilled in copper pot stills. It is aged 8 months in American oak.

Tasting Notes

"This dry and toasty mezcal has flavors reminiscent of buttery popcorn. The time in oak lends a sweet spice and burnt caramel notes that compliment the inherent peppery qualities of the distillate. The finish is smooth and spicy, with only a touch of smoke."
