About this product

It presents a complex palate with smokiness and caramel sweetness. One to serve on the rocks with slices of fresh orange or in a twist on the classic Negroni.

Mezcal San Cosme is named after Saint Cosmas who, alongside his twin brother Damian, is worshiped by some as the Patron Saint of Doctors. Together, the brothers defied death on several occasions.

San Cosme Mezcal is produced in small batches in Oaxaca, Mexico, the state which is home to the country’s most vibrant crafts and art scene.
