MEZCAL METEORO TEQUILA
From Las Margaritas, Oaxaca, comes Meteoro Joven Mezcal, named after the legend of a small meteor making a little crater in Oaxaca and a local Mezcalero using it as an earthen pit oven to cook his agave hearts (‘Meteoro’ is Spanish for ‘Meteor’ – FYI). This is a 100% Espadin Agave Mezcal, twice distilled in copper pot still by by maestro Petonilo Rosario Altamirano.
On the palate, Meteoro reveals a peppery sip with hints of roasted cinnamon and star anise in the mouth as a distinctly smoky and fruit flavor envelopes the palate. Aromatic and complex, all at the same time, Meteoro is a little creamy on the palate that finishes with the fine sweetness of citrus peel and white pepper. Intense and highly enjoyable, neat, Meteoro Mezcal also opens itself to beautiful margaritas and cocktails.
