This unaged mezcal’s name means “mountain of wolves,” and it’s crafted with 100% certified organic espadin agave from Santiago, Matatlán, that’s baked in traditional fire pits. The spirit achieves balanced and complexity through a bold integration between agave, fermentation notes and smoke, for which it received a Double Gold medal at the 2013 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

"The finish is mouth-filling and long, fire, brimstone, and deep savory notes. Solid mezcal start to finish, with an extra little kick due to a touch higher alcohol content."

Product Details

Meticulously crafted by world renowned agave expert Iván Saldaña, this spirit is made according to his vision and passion for agave and artisanal mezcal. It’s crafted using 100% certified organic espadin agave, and bottled unaged as an homage to the distillate and agave. The agave is baked in traditional fire pits for four or five days, which develops its signature smoky characteristics similar to peated Scotch. The baked agave is mashed using a traditional stone wheel, and the juice is fermented in pine vats before being distilled. The spirit achieves extraordinary balance and complexity through its bold integration between agave, fermentation notes and smoke.
