Manufacturing and aging

Montelobos is a handcrafted mezcal made in Santiago Matatlán. It is produced using exclusively certified organic agave espadin. Master Distiller, Don Abel, has a long experience as a farmer. His horse named Rambo pulls the tahona, the traditional agave milling method. The connections to pre-industrial
traditions don’t stop there, Don Abel is a Zapotec speaker and was largely responsible for threading the eye of organic certification. Don Abel constantly adjusts the distillation process for all the varied factors like humidity and the type and quality wood used in the baking process.
