Origen Raiz Cenizo mezcal is the flagship mezcal from the home of the Saravia family, Rancho El Ojo, a true biodiverse and sustainable property. 30% of the fields are allowed to flower and seed, increasing diversity in the agaves.

Origen Raiz Cenizo is made with maguey Cenizo (Agave durangensis) by mezcalero Ignacio Grijalva Santiago, who is also known as Don Nacho. Though originally from Oaxaca, he moved to Durango with his family to run the palenque at Rancho El Ojo. Cosme Gabriel Simental also helps with the mezcal production. There are also some bottles made by mezcalero Noe Ramirez Varela.  All of the bottles and batches we’ve seen have come from Rancho El Ojo, which is full of wild agave, sotol, and nopal plants. The ranch lies just outside the Sierra de Órganos National Park, at an elevation of approximately 6,350 feet. The agave used in this mezcal are smoked in underground ovens, crushed by mule-drawn tahona, fermented in open-air oak tanks, and double distilled in copper stills.

Origen Raíz represents a partnership between two distinct sets of Mexican roots: the Saravia family of Durango, who have a long history of working to improve the local economy through business, and the Cortés family of Oaxaca, who contribute six generations of knowledge to the world of mezcal production. The families were brought together by their sons, Asis Cortés and Bildo Saravia, through cultural passion and respect for each other’s heritage.

AROMA: The nose shows pineapple/guava notes with wet slate and bacon fat.
TASTE: On the palate, clove, green pepper and volcanic stone roll over finishing with a sweet cacao spice and heat, that reminds the drinker of guajillo chile.
ENJOY: Sipping mezcal is enjoyed slowly and with friends. Grilled meat, barbecue, kebabs.
