MEZCAL - AGAVE SPIRITS
On the steep precarious hillsides of Oaxaca, Guerrero and Durango, varieties of agave indigenous to the region grow wild and are heavily sought after by the local mezcaleros. These varietals produce flavors that are exotically intense, with rich earth tones and savory smokiness. From the heart of the maguey, these flavors are traditionally extracted to produce mezcal that is wildly refined. Because we at Bozal believe that something wild produces a far richer spirit.
The Spanish term, bozal, translates to "wild" or "untamed." We chose this name for our Mezcal in reference to the wild species of Mexican agave grown in hard-to-reach, uncultivated lands of Oaxaca, Guerrero and Durango. As well as for the untamed traditions used by our family-operated distilleries, or mezcaleros, to distill small batches in those same locations.
