Montelobos is an unaged joven mezcal that has been meticulously cultivated and purposely cooked to achieve a perfect balance of Agave, wood, and subtle smoke. Sustainably sourced wood is used for roasting the 100% organic cultivated espadin agave. Once cooked, the Agave are crushed with a tahona before being left to ferment naturally in open-top wooden vats. Once fermentation is complete, Montelobos is twice distilled in copper pot stills that are heated by the same sustainably sourced wood used for roasting.

Nose: Subtle anise and asparagus with notes of tropical fruit and smoke.
