From Oaxaca, Mexico, comes this beautiful and unusual spirit. Mezcal, like tequila, is made from the agave plant which grows in the region, but unlike tequila, it is smokier and spicier in flavour. These unusual qualities have lead to mezcal becoming one of the hottest new drinks categories in cocktails bars in recent years.
This mezcal is made from 100% espadin agave, and is twice distilled in a copper pot still to give a smooth, round flavour profile. Its flavours are bright, bold, and smoky. It is named after the word for meteor ('Meteoro' in Spanish), after a local legend which states that a meteor landed in the area and made a crater, which an enterprising local farmer then used as un underground oven for cooking his agave. The modern agave cooking process, along with all the other distilling steps, are overseen by master distiller Petronilo Rosario Altamirano.
