La Luna Mezcal Cupreata 750mL

Made mostly from cultivated A. cupreata – shorter but wider than other species with broad leaves colored bright green when cultivated – this is an expression ideal for introducing tasters to mezcal and for cocktails with its bright, floral nose, citrus flavors, smooth textures, and delicate touch of smoke.

La Luna Mezcal originates from one of the most agriculturally rich states in Mexico, Etucuaro, Michoacan, known as the "Cuna de Mezcal", is where the majority of artisanal mezcal in the state is produced.

Tucked away in this mountainous and verdant region is the municipality of Villa Madero, the home to the Perez Escot family and Destiladora Las Azucenas. The Perez Escot brothers have been following their family practices of three generations to craft artisanal mezcal using traditional and biodynamic methods. 

At an elevation of 1790 meters, the wild Cupreata Agave are harvested on their estate after eight to ten years of maturity. Shortly thereafter, the "pinas" are fire roasted in a stone lined earth pit using estate sourced white oak. The cooked pinas are then macerated by hand and fermented in hand-made open-air vats vefore veing double distilled in a copper "caso" and pinewood still.
