Origen Raiz Cenizo Mezcal (Durango, Mexico) 750ML
Distillery Notes: To make Origen Raíz, the hardy wild agave species known as ‘Cenizo’ is harvested from high elevations on Rancho El Ojo in Durango after maturating for 10-14 years. The piñas are cooked in a wood-fired pit oven and crushed by a traditional mule-drawn tahona. After openly fermenting in oak tanks, two distillations take place in copper pot stills.
Concentrated aromas of sweet, roasted agave give way to lightly perfumed floral notes of raw honey and honeysuckle. Origen Raíz is a full, round, and rich mezcal with a mildly spicy finish.
