Montelobos Tobalá Mezcal Joven
Montelobos // Puebla, Mexico
Montelobos Tobalá Mezcal is made with sustainably-produced agave potatorum--otherwise known as Tobalá--rather than wild agave which is more common. These agaves were cultivated from seed and grown in Puebla until they were mature (up to 15 years). The agaves were harvested and then roasted in an in-ground earth oven lined with brick from 5-7 days. After fermentation (ten days), the cooked agave juice was distilled twice in copper stills powered by wood-fueled fire.
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.
