This Destilado Con Jamon Iberico style mezcal really show cases the heart and soul of traditional Mexico. Usually produced in very small batches and reserved for family ceremonies and festivals, it involves the addition of organic pork shoulder and aromatic herbs, spices and seasonal fruits to the second and final distillation. This is a real treat.
TASTE: A viscous mouthfeel coats the palate with savory flavours, complemented by a slight floral note of hibiscus flower.
ENJOY: Let this one open up in the glass for a few minutes. The difference is well worth it.
