Introducing Xicaru Mezcal Silver Tequila, a distinguished spirit crafted with reverence for tradition and a bold exploration of flavor. Hailing from the heart of Oaxaca, Mexico, Xicaru Mezcal embodies the essence of artisanal mezcal-making, offering a taste experience that is as authentic as it is unforgettable.

Handcrafted using traditional methods passed down through generations, Xicaru Mezcal Silver Tequila begins with the careful selection of mature agave plants, harvested at their peak of ripeness. These prized piñas are roasted in earthen pits over hot stones, infusing the spirit with the smoky complexity that is characteristic of mezcal.

After roasting, the agave is crushed by tahona stone wheels, extracting the sweet nectar that will become Xicaru Mezcal Silver Tequila. The juice is then fermented naturally with wild yeast, allowing the flavors to develop and mature over time.

Once fermentation is complete, the mezcal is double-distilled in copper pot stills, resulting in a spirit of exceptional purity and clarity. The Silver Tequila is then bottled unaged, preserving its vibrant character and allowing the true essence of the agave to shine through.

Upon pouring, Xicaru Mezcal Silver Tequila captivates with its crystal-clear appearance and enticing aroma. Notes of roasted agave, citrus zest, and hints of smoke mingle on the nose, inviting anticipation with each inhalation.

On the palate, this mezcal delivers a symphony of flavors. Rich and earthy, with hints of sweet caramel, tropical fruits, and a touch of minerality, it offers a sensory journey that is both intriguing and satisfying. The finish is long and lingering, with echoes of smoke and spice that leave a lasting impression.

Versatile and approachable, Xicaru Mezcal Silver Tequila is perfect for savoring neat, on the rocks, or as the foundation for classic cocktails such as the Margarita or Paloma. Whether shared with friends or savored in quiet contemplation, it promises a tasting experience that is both memorable and rewarding.

Indulge in the spirit of Mexico with Xicaru Mezcal Silver Tequila and experience the true essence of artisanal mezcal-making.

These stills are much smaller than modern ones, making batches unique and limited.Mezcal is a traditional Mexican distilled beverage produced from the fermented juices of the cooked agave plant core. The Agave salmiana from Mexico's Altiplano region is used for mezcal production. The agave cores are cooked in stone ovens to hydrolyze the inulin into fructose.To truly be called mezcal, the liquor must come from certain areas. States that have certified mezcal agave growing areas with production facilities are Durango, Guanajuato, Guerrero, Oaxaca, San Luis Potosí, Puebla, Michoacan, Tamaulipas, and Zacatecas.

“All tequila is mezcal, but not all mezcal is tequila.” It's a statement that gets tossed around a lot, and it is, in spirit, true: Mezcal is any liquor distilled from agave, a succulent plant native to the Americas, and tequila is made with the blue Weber agave species.
