This super limited edition Mezcal (only 240 bottles!) has made it to Germany all the way from Batopilas, Chihuahua, México. Cumbrita de la Sierra is a 100% single producer owned brand; the maker, Dolores González, is at least the third generation of producer in his family, and one of only a handful who are still producing Lechuguilla in the region. In this region, the word “Lechuguilla” refers both to the plant, and the drink distilled from it. The agave used is Agave shrevei, although there does appear to be a lot of morphological variation and we may eventually find out that there are a couple of different species being used. The Agave grows about 1000 meters above Batopilas, on the summits of the cliffs of the Copper Canyon (hence the name - Cumbrita de la Sierra - Summit of the Mountain). The producers will travel up and out of the canyon with horses and donkeys, staying in the mountains for days on end while they cut and haul the Lechuguilla back to the Vinata (area of production). All this work creates a beautifully balanced spirit, with the gentle smoky flavor characteristic of Mezcal.
