Mezonte 'Jorge Perez' Mezcal (200ml)
Mezonte Michoacan is made with maguey Alto (agave Inaequidens) in Rio de Parras, Querendaro, Michoacan. The agave are cooked in a shallow brick oven (if you dig too deep, you hit water), fermented in brick with about 6 liters of pulque, and distilled in a hollowed out tree trunk that has a copper top. This is made by master distiller Jorge Perez. The first batch imported into the US was produced in 2018 at just 285 liters
Mezonte is an non-governmental organization (NGO) that promotes, supports and preserves the production and practices of traditional agave spirits. Mezonte’s main objective is to create awareness of the cultural and biological value that these spirits represent. They feature agave spirits from all over Mexico, with an emphasis on Jalisco and Michoacán.
