Tequila and Mezcal

Coming only from separate, delimited zones within Mexico, Tequila and Mezcal’s are made from species of the agave plant. The Agave hearts (the center part of the plant that is revealed when the leaves are cut back) must be roasted to bring out the sugars necessary for distillation. Mezcal does this in a very traditional way, bringing out the natural smoky flavor which creates the great complexity that made Sombra Mezcal the standout. Unaged versions are labeled as Blanco and have the purist agave expressions where oak aged versions such as Reposado or Rested, Anejo or Aged and Extra Anejo add more layers of sweet spice and toffee.
