Lágrimas de Dolores Mezcal Masparillo Joven
Story

Maguey Masparillo is a wild form of Agave maximiliana. It is one of the rarer breeds of agave, and due to its scarcity Masparillo mezcal is difficult to produce. Tahona milling is not traditional in Durango; the agave is crushed by hand, then fermented in open-top pine wood tanks for a week. After fermentation, the mezcal is distilled twice – first in a larger 700L copper and steel still, then a second time in a smaller copper still.
