Mezcal Verde Momento - Organic Mezcal
Holy moly. Are you a mezcal fan? Does agave run in your blood? Meet Verde Momento.
Verde Momento is made with 8 year-old organic agave Espadin by mezcalero Doroteo Garcia in Tlacolula, Oaxaca. The agaves are cooked in an underground oven using ocote, holm oak and pepper tree, which give it a smokiness perfect for cocktails. After cooking for about 5 days, the agaves are tahona-crushed before being put into 1,500 litre fermentation vats. The natural fermentation can last from 7 to 30 days depending on the production season, the amount of rain, and variations in temperature. Finally, it is doubled distilled in a 500 litre copper still. It's a stunning mezcal, evocative of of grass, soft smoke and fresh peach.
Every batch of Mezcal Verde features a unique label designed by a contemporary Mexican artist – a collaboration aimed at supporting the local culture of the mezcal-producing regions. Each bottle has a different label.
