Mezcal Nuestra Soledad

http://www.casacortes.mx/

Mezcal Nuestra Soledad (a name which pays homage to Our Lady the Virgin of Solitude, the patron saint of the city of Oaxaca) is born from an ancient tradition and hand-crafted to conserve and retain the centuries-old methods of cultivating and producing this Elixir of the Gods. Each of their mezcals is made from cultivated 100% Agave Espadín from the producers of Agave de Cortes & El Jolgorio mezcals in Oaxaca, Mexico. Traditionally, mezcals from different Zapotec villages have their own distinctive flavours and aromas, which reflect the differences between distilleries, the soil, the local water sources, the wood used, and of course, the hand of the Maestro Mezcalero. Mezcal Nuestra Soledad is a single village mezcal that showcases these differences between six villages scattered throughout Oaxaca’s mountainous regions.
