Los Siete Misterios was born from a trip the founders took in 2010. Inspired by the traditions, culture, and passion of the distilleries they visited, they embarked on connecting this "lost world" with the present time. Los Siete Misterios are a family comprised of the Founders, the Maestros Mezcaleros and the broader Oaxacan communities that work together to bring you a perfectly refined spirit. Los Siete Misterios is also committed to supporting the micro economies in which the distilleries are located.
Made with 100% agave Arroqueno, one of the oldest and largest agave that can be used for mezcal production in Oaxaca. This Arroqueno mezcal has, over time, become a favourite between enthusiasts. It achieves a perfect balance between nose and palate and is unique in that is offers complex flavours imparted by the clay pot distillation.
AROMA: The clay has a strong presence alongside sauerkraut, wet leaves, barbecued brisket, green pepper, tomatillo, and sea spray. Also quite pungent, with smoked gouda and bicycle inner tube in the mix.
TASTE: Wet clay, leafy greens (spinach, butter lettuce), gun smoke, sauerkraut, clove and oregano. A bit of tangy sweetness somewhere between pineapple and a tart peach. Medium-full bodied. The finish turns to burning leaves, pineapple, green chile, cooked agave, and a touch of dill pickle, trailing off into baked apple and peanut. Astringent, with long length.
ENJOY: Sipping tequila is enjoyed slowly and with friends
