Mezcales de Leyenda Puebla and San Luis Potosí

Mexican-owned mezcal brand Mezcales de Leyenda released two new single-state variants, made from agave grown exclusively in Puebla and San Luis Potosí.

Each mezcal is produced using traditional, sustainable methods specific to each region, from harvest to distillation, said to maintain the “craftsmanship of true mezcal”.

Puebla is produced from agave poatorium, or ‘Tobala’, and is said to be one of just two mezcals produced in the state. The agaves are cooked in a lava rock-lined put for four days, before being fermented in open-air oak vats and double distilled in a copper alembic still.

San Luis Potosí is made from salmiana agave grown in the rocky central Mexican plateau. Cooking takes place in clay ovens for two days and fermentation in natural vats for four days, before the liquid is copper distilled.
