La Penca Mezcal 36% 70cl
Presented in a lovely hand blown bottle, made form 100 agave with agave grub. Mezcal production differs from tequila in that the maguey pinas are roasted or grilled over hot rocks in covered conical pits rather than slow-baked. This roasting caramelises the maguey sugars, giving the mescal its smokiness.
La Penca is the name of the sword-like leaves that are removed from the maguey plant when removing the pina.
Distilled from 'Salmaina' - an outstanding form of Maguey (Agave). The Mezcal is stored in white oak barrels to age, maintaining tradition and ensuring the distinctive flavour profile. 100% Agave. Packaged in a hand blown Artisan bottle. La Penca is complemented by the presence of two Agave grubs rather than the traditional one.
