A slightly smoky yet herbacious undertone rests on the center of the palate of Bozal Espadin-Barril-Mexicano Ensemble Mezcal. Citrus and floral notes are introduced and strengthened by a warm viscose finish. This is a light and easy sipping mezcal, which will delight and surprise you with its complex lingering finish.

Bozal Ensemble Mezcal is a blend of Espadin, Barril, and Mexicano agaves. Espadin, genetic mother of the Blue Weber Agave, is used to produce tequila and is also the predominant agave used in mezcal production. Barril, a thick-foliaged wild agave often used as fencing to divide land in Oaxaca, intensifies the complexity. Mexicano thrives in the moist environment of lower elevations; it can grow quite large and is usually harvested when close to ten years of age, when it has a high concentration of sugar.

On the steep precarious hillsides of Oaxaca and Guerrero varieties of agave, indigenous to the region, grow wild and are heavily sought after by the local mezcaleros. These varietals produce flavors that are exotically intense, with rich earth tones and savory smokiness. From the heart of the maguey these flavors are traditionally extracted to produce mezcal that is wildly refined. Because those at Bozal believe that something wild produces a far richer spirit.

The Spanish term bozal translates to “wild” or “untamed.” The name bozal was chosen for Bozal Mezcal in reference to the wild species of Mexican agave grown in hard to reach, uncultivated lands of Oaxaca and Guerrero. As well as for the untamed traditions used by the family operated distilleries, or mezcaleros, to distill small batches in those same locations.
