Full of flavor and aroma, this artesenal agave spirit exudes notes of cooked plaintains, anis, and smoked hickory. Crafted by master distiller Berta Vasquez in Chichicapam, Oaxaca from wild agave rhodacantha, Luneta's Mexicano is roasted below ground with mesquite and oak wood. It is smashed with a tahona (horse-drawn grindstone), fermented with naturally occuring yeast in cypress wood vats and twice distilled in copper. Berta produced around 160 liters of this delicious spirit.
We visit and build personal relationships with all mezcaleros we purchase from. The producers we collaborate with belong to families that have been crafting traditional agave spirits for at least three generations. They utilize stills with a capacity of 250 liter or less. No two batches are ever the same.
