Mezonte Durango Tepe Aciano Mezcal

Product description

Despite its name, Mezonte Tepe is NOT made with agave Tepextate. Instead this gets it’s name from the Tepehuano community where it’s produced, at the border of Jalisco, Nayarit, and Durango. This reclusive community insists on isolation from western culture ​and the specific location of this distiller is somewhat mysterious. This spirit is made with agave Cenizo (a. bovicornuta). The term Cenizo is used to describe a lot of different agaves, and in this case this agave is also commonly referred to as agave Lechguilla Verde. While we call this spirit a Raicilla for ease of use on this site, there are certain groups that consider this a completely different agave spirit outside of the world of Raicilla.
