How It Is Made

The agave salmiana is steam-heated in steel oven’s, similar to the way tequila is cooked. Milling is done on an ancient juice extracting crush. Fermentation occurs in ground-level cement tanks and is double distilled in copper alembic stills. One of the few agaves that resist the harsh conditions of the Mexican high plateau, Verde is normally harvested from ample wild populations and yields 1L of mezcal per 30 kgs of Agave and taking 12 to 16 years to reach maturity. We are honoured to exclusively import and share this brand with Australia.
