The agaves are cooked in a lava rock lined pit for three days before they are mechanically milled and fermented for a further five days. The mezcal is double-distilled in copper pot-stills by Mezcalero Don Aaron Alba, a 4th generation producer. The agaves are organic and fair trade certified.

"A light campfire smoke marries fantastically with dulce de leche and apple cake aromas in this spirit's fantastic nose. The palate shows more dry and mineral flavors with a blast of sea salt and brined lemon that carry a delicious savory character. The finish has a pleasant spice note and lingering mango fruit flavors. A very complex sipping mezcal."
