Mezcal Joven, Agave de Cortés
For close to 200 years, the Cortés family has been growing, foraging and distilling the maguey in the Zapotec town of Santiago Matatlán, 30 miles southeast of Oaxaca City: the gateway to the Oaxacan highlands, mezcal country! Besides being farmers and master distillers, the Cortés family is the driving force behind the award winning mezcales of El Jolgorio and Nuestra Soledad.

Agave de Cortés is a beautiful expression of 100% Espadín agave, distilled in the iconic mezcal production town of Santiago Matatlán. On the nose, subdued smoke lays the groundwork for vegetal ripeness and floral notes. On the palate, bright acidity and 45% ABV balance with layers and layers of flavor: lemongrass, damp earth, faint fruit and dense clay/mineral are coated by rich body and silky texture. An unparalleled introduction to the category.
