Mezonte 'Santos Juarez' Mezcal Jalisco (200ml)
Santos is a restless worker. Like the others, he sows corn, beans, squash, and extracts honey. On his land, in addition to maguey, he has mangoes, pomegranates, mamey, noni, papaya (Cactus fruit) and other fruits. Hundreds of pitayas grow among its agaves. Its place is privileged by its geography. It is on the edge of the Tuxcacuesco River, the Neovolcanic Axis and the Sierra de Manantlán.
Santos uses black stone rocks as fermentation vats, which gives his mezcals a very particular mineral touch.
Mezonte is a noprofit organization 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. Their producers make mezcal, raicilla, barranca, tuxca, sikua, or any other name used for distilled agave in this region. When Mezonte buys a batch from a producer, they only buy 60% of the batch because they want the community and the culture of the community to continue to consume and enjoy as they have for hundreds of years.
