Viejo Indecente

100% agave of two varieties: Madrecuishe (40%) and Espadin (60%). Madrecuishe is a special type of agave in that it takes much longer to mature (14 years!) compared with Espadin. It is smaller and lower-yielding than Espadin, and is prized for its silky mouthfeel. Both agave varieties are naturally harvested and cooked together in a handcrafted steam oven, then fermented in Montezuma wood tanks. Distilled twice in a copper alembic.

All grown on the Lucas family farm and distilled on-site. This is a single-village Mezcal (San Isidro Guishe). 

An herbal nose continues on the palate, with a smokeless, refined finish.
