Manufacturing and aging

Tier is dedicated to making mezcal in the most traditional way. When doing an Ensamble different types of agave are cooked and fermented together. In Tier’s first batch of Ensamble the handpicked agave used are; Espadin, Madrecuixe and Cuixe. The cooking is done in a conical stone lined pit. A Tahona crushes the agave so that the
juice can be fermented in wooden containers. The juice is then distilled twice in copper pot stills of a size of no more than 70 liters. No water is added to get the mezcal to the desired ABV. They use puntas and colas to do so.
