Corte Vetusto Mezcal Joven Tobala 700ml
An old Oaxacan proverb reads: 'Tequila is to wake the living, mezcal is to wake the dead'.
Corte Vetusto certainly hope to wake more people to the possibilities of interesting, sophisticated mezcal.
This Joven (un-aged) mezcal stands at 42% ABV.
It's a smooth effort that resulted from using a conical earthen oven with mesquite wood to cook the Tobalá agave.
Volcanic stone ensures the product is milled before it ferments naturally.
The spirit is finally distilled twice in both copper and clay pot stills for contrasting tastes to provide a complex blend.
