Title: Casamigos Mezcal
Artisanal Craftsmanship: Casamigos Mezcal is a testament to the artistry of traditional mezcal production. Crafted with care and precision, this mezcal reflects the dedication of Casamigos to preserving the authenticity and time-honored techniques of mezcal-making.
Agave Espadín Harvest: The journey begins with the harvest of mature Agave Espadín, the varietal revered for its rich flavors and versatile profile. Sourced from the agave-rich regions of Oaxaca, Mexico, the piñas (hearts) of the agave plants are carefully extracted and prepared for the artisanal mezcal-making process.
Underground Pit Roasting: Casamigos Mezcal embraces the traditional method of underground pit roasting. The agave piñas are placed in earthen pits lined with lava rocks and mesquite wood, creating a smoky and distinctive flavor profile. Slow-roasted to perfection, the agave develops a depth of character that sets this mezcal apart.
Stone Grinding and Fermentation: After roasting, the agave hearts undergo stone grinding by tahona, a large stone wheel used to extract the sweet agave juice. The extracted juice is then fermented in wooden vats, allowing the natural sugars to transform into alcohol. This fermentation process contributes to the mezcal's complex flavor spectrum.
Copper Pot Distillation: Casamigos Mezcal is distilled in copper pot stills, a method that refines and concentrates the flavors while removing impurities. The resulting mezcal is a testament to the artisanal approach, offering a spirit that captures the essence of the agave plant with depth and nuance.
