What is the Heritage Behind Mezcalum?

Mezcalum stands as a proud Product of Mexico, originating from the heart of Oaxaca. Our brand is a tribute to the rich heritage of mezcal and the time-honored Mexican traditions that have been passed down through generations. Every drop of Mezcalum mezcal speaks to our commitment to authentic, natural ingredients and artisanal production. With Zero Carbs, Zero Sugar, Zero Additives, Non-GMO, Vegan, and All-Natural credentials, Mezcalum is not just a drink—it's a lifestyle choice for the discerning.

How Do We Begin the Mezcal Making Process?

The journey of crafting Mezcalum mezcal begins with the selection of Espadin and Cuishe agave. These agave varieties are not just plants; they are the soul of our mezcal. Growing wild in the arid regions of Oaxaca's central valleys, at altitudes ranging from 750 to 2,000 meters, these plants are a testament to the resilience and beauty of nature. It takes 6-12 years for the agave to reach maturity, a period during which patience becomes our virtue.

What Makes Our Harvesting Process Unique?

Our Maestro Mezcalero, Carlos Méndez Blas, is the guardian of our ancestral wisdom. With nearly a century of family tradition pulsing through his veins, Carlos selects and harvests the agave hearts at their peak. This step is crucial, as it sets the foundation for the quality of the mezcal. The harvesting process is not just a task; it's a ritual, a moment of connection between man and earth.

How is the Agave Prepared for Mezcal Production?

Once harvested, the agave hearts undergo a transformation process that begins with roasting. This step is pivotal in defining the flavor profile of our mezcal. The hearts are slowly roasted in earthen pits, where the heat and smoke work their magic, imbuing the agave with a depth of flavor that is both complex and alluring.

What is the Secret to Fermenting Mezcalum Mezcal?

Fermentation is where the alchemy happens. In this stage, the roasted agave is mixed with pure water and left to ferment naturally. This process allows the sugars to convert into alcohol, creating a rich, flavorful liquid that captures the essence of the agave. Our fermentation process is a testament to our dedication to natural and authentic production practices.

How Do We Achieve the Distinct Taste of Mezcalum?

Distillation is the final step in crafting our mezcal. Using traditional copper pot stills, the fermented liquid is distilled to perfection. This meticulous process ensures that each bottle of Mezcalum mezcal embodies the purity and essence of our beloved agave. The result is a spirit that is not just enjoyed but savored, a celebration of Mexican heritage in every sip.

Embarking on the journey of making Mezcalum mezcal is not just about producing an exquisite spirit; it's about honoring tradition, embracing sustainability, and celebrating the rich cultural heritage of Mexico. We invite you to join us in this celebration, to taste the spirit of Oaxaca, and to become part of the Mezcalum family. Cheers to the artistry, the tradition, and the passion that goes into every bottle of Mezcalum mezcal. Salud!
