Casamigos Mezcal

Feb 19, 2018

Category: Vices

Less than a year after purchasing the young tequila brand Casamigos, British liquor giant Diageo is extending their new imprint’s line to include something a little different; Casamigos Mezcal.

Made in Matatlan, Mexico from espadin agaves, this liquor features a smooth, smoked taste that’s easy to drink and has notes of tropical fruit. According to the brand, the agaves used to make this 40% ABV spirit are first split and cooked in an earthen pit for six days, and then cooled for a full day before being fermented for another eight. After being distilled twice in copper pots, they stabilize for about a month and are added with mountain sprint water. This Mezcal, the first of its kind from the brand after being bought from founders Rande Gerber, George Clooney, and Mike Meldman for $1 Billion in July of 2017, is recommended to be enjoyed at room temperature and drunk from special clay pot bowls called Copitas.

Purchase: $60
