About Meteoro / the universe of Mezcal
Mezcal is the best kept secret of Mexico and the most ancient distilled spirit in America. mezcal can derive from several varietals of agave, most of them grown in the wild in different regions of the land.
in the state of oaxaca alone, at least 22 varietals are used to produce mezcal, of which the espadín is the most widely used.
Much like it happens with wine, varietals have very distinct properties that will yield an incredible array of flavors and aromas. terroir and the hand of the “maestro mezcalero” also play a fundamental part in the characteristics of the end product.
Meteoro is made from 100% agave espadín.
