Product Details

Contraluz Cristalino Mezcal is matured for approximately 6 months in charred American oak barrels and filtered through activated charcoal. The result is a crystal-clear liquid with an elegant blend of aromas and flavors that are refined yet full of mezcal's signature character.

Originally, releases of this mezcal were aged for more than 12 months in American oak barrels and then filtered. As of 2022, the process involves resting the mezcal for 6 months in charred American oak barrels before being filtered through activated charcoal.

Contraluz, the first Cristalino Mezcal, taking mezcal to the next level: Contraluz redefines and elevates the meaning of Ultra-Premium mezcal. Good balance, full of personality. Aged in American oak barrels and activated carbon filtering. Contraluz deliver a balanced, crystalline and bright distillate.

Contraluz claims to be the world’s first cristalino mezcal. In 2022, Colombian singer Maluma (Juan Luis Londoño Arias) joined the Contraluz team as the face of the brand as it eyes expansion.

Tasting Notes:

Primary notes of green agave, citrus (orange and lemon peel) floral (blossom) and a light smoke are complemented by subtle notes of vanilla, cedar, honey, and dried fruit. The finish is sweet and long lasting, balanced by the taste of cooked agave, clove and cacao.
