Lágrimas de Dolores Mezcal Castilla Joven
Story

Maguey Castilla is a cultivated version of Agave angustifolia. It is a large species, sometimes growing as tall as 2.5 meters. It has been cultivated for many generations by the Tepehuan and Huichol communities of Southern Mezquital. Tahona milling is not traditional in Durango; the agave is mechanically milled then fermented in open-top pine wood tanks for a week. After fermentation, the mezcal is twice-distilled in copper stills.
