Bozal Mezcal - Cenizo Single Maguey
On the steep precarious hillsides of Oaxaca, Guerrero, Durango and San Luis Potosí varieties of agave, indigenous to the region, grow wild and are heavily sought after by the local mezcaleros. These varietals produce flavors that are exotically intense, with rich earth tones and savory smokiness. From the heart of the maguey these flavors are traditionally extracted to produce mezcal that is wildly refined.
Of the Durangensis family of agaves, this wild agave is typically harvested from the hillsides of Durango. Cenizo thrives in high altitudes up to 8,500ft with cool and dry conditions.
