Los Siete Misterios Barril
Have a Question?
(Agave Karwinskii) Similar to the entire Los Siete Misterios lineup, the 2012 Barril was distilled twice in hand made clay pots to achieve a traditional Oaxacan ‘pot strength’ mezcal. The agaves were cooked in earth oven pits, using nearby deadwood and river stones. They were hand smashed in Sabino wood canoes. Fermentation occurs naturally using wild yeasts. This mezcal comes straight from an estate Palenque in Sola de Vega. Los Siete Misterios continues to be an international benchmark when it comes to traditional clay pot mezcal distilling.
