Lagrimas de Dolores Masparillo Mezcal

Lagrimas de Dolores Masparillo is made with maguey Masparillo (agave maximiliana) by the de la Cruz and Flores families in San Miguel Temoaya. It is one of the rarer breeds of agave, and due to its scarcity Masparillo Mezcal is difficult to produce. The cooked agave hearts are crushed by hand using machetes and fermented in open pine vats, and then double-distilled in a conical wooden still. This alembique viejo is the traditional method in Durango, essentially a modernised version of the older indigenous tree-trunk stills used long ago in the area by Huicholes and other indigenous groups in Durango.

AROMA: Dry grass and firewood on the nose
TASTE:  ​Complex, a lot going on and hard to pin down the plethora of flavours. Boba tea. Baked apple. All spice. Peppermint heat. Dry grass, Himalayan salt and vanilla latte in the finish that goes on for days. Pretty fantastic stuff!
ENJOY: Delicious to sip neat or great as a cocktail inclusion for a classic Tommy's Style Mezcal Margarita, or paired with Grilled Whitefish, Humus, Poultry Dishes, Chocolates

Lagrimas de Dolores is made at Hacienda Dolores, which is run by the Gutierrez family and situated about 10 minutes from Durango City. They have a goal of replanting for each of the agave that they use in their mezcal. They report that they have an annual goal of planting around 50,000 agaves. Their bottle was designed in Feuquières, France. The leather on the cap is meant to be a signature feature from Mexican fine-horse culture. Their logo is a representation of Our Lady of Sorrows (latin: Mater Dolorosa) the patron saint of Hacienda Dolores. Their Joven and Anejo mezcal are produced entirely with Agave durangensis, which is endemic to the State of Durango in Northern Mexico. They also have special limited releases that feature rare agave like I’gok, Cimmarion, and Tepemete.
