Mezcal Vago Elote
Mezcal Vago // Oaxaca, Mexico
Mezcal Vago Elote begins innocently enough as the brand's 100% agave espadin mezcal. But master mezcalero Aquilino García López takes it further by adding toasted corn (elote) to the spirit after its second distillation. After days of infusion, the roasted corn is separated and the mezcal is distilled for a third and final time. It's bottled unaged at a spirited 50.2% ABV.
Mezcal JovenA spirit distilled from one or more different varieties of agave. Can only be produced in designated areas within 8 different Mexican states. Must be bottled in México. This is unaged or aged in stainless steel or plastic containers before bottling.
