The Story: Hand-crafted on a steep hillside in the high mountain village of Santo Domingo Albarradas, this elegant Espadín-based Mezcal takes on the cool character of the elevation, bordering a lush cloud forest. Naturally fermented and twice distilled in wood-fired copper stills, it bears all the delicate elegance of the very expressions of Espadín.Why You'll Love Me: Look for a delicate nose with lots of dry citrus, and a palate which shows tropical fruit with a bit of roasted pear and salinity and a clean, dry finish.
