This mezcal is crushed with a tahona and then naturally fermented. Two distillations are done in a 250 liter copper pot still. This mezcal was a International Wine & Spirit Competition 2017 Gold Outstanding & Mezcal Trophy winner.
Corte Vetusto mezcal is hand-crafted by Juan Carlos Gonzalez Diaz, a 4th generation Zapotec Maestro Mezcalero. The art of mezcal making was passed down through the generations since his great grandfather, Don Mauro. The name of the brand Corte Vetusto means "the ancient cut" and comes from an old story about a master mezcalero's desire to create a cut of mezcal so divine that it invokes the spirit of generations before him. That sacred distillation of earth, fire and history is the Corte Vetusto.
AROMA: Really great presence on the nose. Sweet aromas with a bit of smoke…
TASTE: Fruity and sweet up front, giving way to a gentle smokiness with white pepper and vegetable notes
ENJOY: Sipping mezcal is enjoyed slowly and with friends.
