Mayalen Borrego Mezcal, 750ML

Mayalen Borrego is made from wild agave Cupreata. This mezcal is Guerrero’s answer to the mezcal Pechuga from Oaxaca. Their mezcalero starts with the same Wild Cupreata base and then adds nuts, fruits, and spices after the second distillation. This infusion is then distilled a third time with a freshly butchered leg of lamb suspended in the still. The result is meaty, spicy, herbal, and balanced. This variety is complex with a silken texture. Earthen flavors with floral and citric notes linger on the palate long after each sip. This mezcal is triple-distilled and its exclusive recipe has been used by the maestro Mezcalero’s family for many generations. Mayalen Borrego has an alcohol content of 49%.

Mezcal Mayalen proudly presents Agua de Juventud, or Water of Youth, mezcal from the mountains of Guerrero. Their products are 100% hand-crafted and organic . Like many, they believe that the climate, water, and soil conditions of the agave have a direct effect on the resulting mezcal. For this reason, their palenque is located on a site that has yearlong access to natural spring water. They have 4 different varieties of mezcal, but all are produced with the same Wild Cupreata Agave. There are slight differences in production that create different flavor notes and alcohol content for each product. Also, each lot of Mezcal Mayalen is somewhat unique. Check your bottle for details.
