Marca Negra Tepeztate Mezcal, 750ML

Marca Negra Tepeztate is produced in limited quantities due to the scarcity of the agave Tepeztate. This mezcal is made by Jorge Mendez in San Luis del Rio using the agave Tepeztate that take 25-30 years to mature. This is a delicate mezcal that many revere as one of the finest Tepeztate mezcals available outside of Oaxaca. It has an intense minerality with notes of spicy green peppers, chives, and peat.
