There are 3 main categories as set out by the CRM. These are 'Mezcal', 'Artisanal' and 'Ancestral'. Each category dictates the methods and equipment producers can use to make the spirit. We only ever stock bottles from the 'Artisanal' and 'Ancestral' categories. This ensures every bottle is made using traditional and authentic techniques.
Mezcal can be made from about 50 different types of agave giving rise to a plethora of different releases. We do our best to bring you top quality varietals. The most popular agaves used include: Espadin, Barril, Cenizo, Mexicano, Americano, Toabla, wild Jabali.
Equally, there are many different distilleries throughout the regions of production. Here at TopShelfTequila.com.au we list as many authentic brands as we can get our hands on with some of the stand out brands being: Del Maguey, Koch El, Bozal, Bruxo and Nuestra Soledad.
Whilst a lot of mezcal originates from Oaxaca there are other regions in Mexico like Durrango, Zacatecas, San Luis Potosi and Michoacan that also produce amazing product.
We also consider ourselves to be incredibly fortunate to stock releases that are traditionally reserved for family and village celebrations and ceremonies. These types of mezcals really capture the spirit of Mexico in a bottle and include the Iberico, Pechuga and Borrego expressions. In each of these, a ham, chicken breast, leg of lamb and seasonal fruits are included in the still during the final distillation process. As a result the mezcal produced is like no other and is rich with flavour and complexity.
