“Big Smoke in a Big Bottle”
Organic, sustainable and pure goodness, created by THE doctor in Agave.
Ivan Saldaña is worldwide known as an agave expert. Moreover, he even has a PhD in Agave. So when the opportunity presented itself, he decided to make a mezcal with his rules. All organic and cultivated agaves with respect to nature.
Mezcal Montelobos presents a surprising complex aroma, full of fruit and herbal notes such as anise, banana, pineapple and green asparagus. Accompanied by the harmonious integration of smoke. Grass, green agave and flowers appear in the background.
Best enjoyed as it is or through an excellent cocktail. It is perfect with fish, seafood and meats.
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 adjust the distillation process for all the varied factors like humidity and the type and quality wood.
