La Penca Mezcal

La Penca Mezcal

70cl | 40% ABV | Mexico

A Joven (young) Mezcal, La Penca Mezcal is distilled from a type of Maguey agave called Salmaina and presented in a hand blown bottle - con Gusano! (with worm)

Maguey piñas are roasted or grilled over hot rocks in covered conical pits, which caramelises the maguey sugars giving the mescal its smokiness. It is then aged in white oak barrels for 2-6 months,

About this product

La Penca Mezcal can be used in a twist on the classic Negroni with the smoke carrying some of the sweet cooked agave notes. We like it served net next to a platter of cheese.

La Penca Mezcal takes its name from the leaves, reminiscent of swords, which surround the agave plant from which it is produced.

La Penca Mezcal is created in the highlands of San Luis-Zacatecas.
