Mezcal - Espina Roja 200ml


Espina Roja is made by female producer Ariana Buendia and is an extraordinary example of what can be achieved when younger producers take on their family heritage. The brand name comes from the vibrant red thorns that the agave wilds to protect itself. Only 250 liters were bottled, making it a super limited edition batch.

Cultivated agave between 8 and 12 years of age Maguey, locally known as Alto (Agave Inaquidens) is harvested within 8 days. It is then cooked for a total of 10 days in a conical oven pit covered with volcanic stone and ground by hand with a wooden club. The fermentation is executed for 11 days in tepetate pits to which the pulque is added with natural spring water. It is then distilled in a Filipino Alembic made of fir wood.

Notes are mineral and woody with subtle lactic nuances.
