Product Description

SAN LUIS POTOSÍ, LOCATED IN MEXICO’S CENTRAL HIGHLANDS, POSSESSES AN UNMATCHED CULTURAL RICHNESS, THE RESULT OF CENTURIES OF BEING AT THE HISTORICAL FOREFRONT AND A RICH INDIGENOUS PRESENCE. THE DESERT OF THIS REGION, ALTHOUGH INHOSPITABLE AT FIRST GLANCE, HAS ITS OWN TYPE OF RICHES: ABUNDANT CACTI, WILDFLOWERS AND SHRUBS; AS WELL AS ALL TYPES OF WILDLIFE SUCH AS HARES, COYOTES AND BIRDS THAT GIVE LIFE TO APPARENT ARIDITY. TO THIS DAY, ONE OF THESE LANDSCAPES, THE EXTENSIVE AND FORMIDABLE SEMI-DESERT MOUNTAINS, HIDES ONE OF MEXICO’S BEST-KEPT SECRETS: GREEN AGAVE.

MEZCAL

This mezcal’s unique profile stems from a meticulous process that involves steam cooking, milling and extraction using traditional methods and distillation in traditional copper stills.

TASTING NOTES

Colour: crystal-clear with silver highlights Body: full body Aroma: cooked agave, caramel, green chile, sweet fruit and freshly cut grass with subtle aromas of wildflowers Palate: herbal front with hints of caramel, lime zest and clove, with a mineral and spiced aftertaste 

DECANTER

The decanter made for this edition is inspired by the history of the Huachichil people, a nomadic tribe that roamed across the desert of San Luis Potosí in Central Mexico. The red colour of the ceramic alludes to the name of these people, which means “red-painted heads.” The carvings on the base of the decanter are symbols of its stories: the vast desert and mountains that make up its territory, green agave leaves typical of the region and the red finch which is of great significance to the Huachichil people.

CAP

Made by hand by Mexican artisans using a technique that uses coloured yarn to create intricate designs, the decanter’s cap represents a beautiful oneiric landscape of desert mountains and valleys filled with bright red finches in flight. Each cap takes our artisan more than three hours of work to complete.

SIMPLE PAIRINGS

Fruit: red plum, lychee or green olive Cheese: aged goat cheese, fresh goat cheese or requesón (whey cheese) Chocolate: white chocolate or ruby chocolate
