Anejo Mezcal

Añejo Mezcal, with its amber hue and intricate flavour profile, stands as a testament to time and patience, reminiscent of the vast landscapes and rich cultural tapestry of Mexico. While the world of spirits is brimming with options, Añejo Mezcal occupies a unique niche, revered for its depth of character and complexity which comes from extended ageing.

Mezcal, at its core, is a distilled alcoholic beverage made from the maguey plant, a type of agave native to Mexico. The process begins with the harvesting of these plants, whose heart or "piña" is roasted in underground pits. This roasting imparts the signature smoky flavour that mezcal is known for. Once roasted, the piñas are crushed, fermented, and then distilled. It’s post-distillation, in the ageing process, that mezcal is bestowed with the title "Añejo."

To be classified as Añejo, the mezcal must be aged in oak barrels for a minimum of one year. This ageing process can extend to several years, and during this time, the spirit undergoes a profound transformation. The wooden confines of the barrels allow the mezcal to breathe and evolve, drawing out flavours from the wood, mellowing its fiery spirit, and adding layers of flavour complexity. The result is a mezcal with a smoother mouthfeel, enriched with notes of caramel, vanilla, and sometimes even hints of dried fruits or chocolate.

While the smoky essence remains the backbone of an Añejo Mezcal's flavour profile, the ageing in oak imparts a delightful balance of sweet and woody notes. This makes it a favourite among connoisseurs who relish sipping it neat, letting each sip tell its story of time, wood, and the arid Mexican landscapes. The nuanced flavours also make Añejo Mezcal a coveted ingredient in sophisticated cocktails, where it can shine and elevate the drink with its smoky elegance.

In the realm of spirits, Añejo Mezcal, with its smoky allure and intricate dance of flavours, beckons to be explored and savoured. It embodies the very essence of the land it hails from, reflecting the traditions and craftsmanship of generations.
