Sangre de Vida Tequila & Mezcal
We have just added Sangre de Vida's popular Tequila and Mezcal to the range.
For Sangre de Vida Tequila and Mezcal, each bottle is a small work of art, with each bottle hand-painted with motifs drawn from the rich history and culture of Mexico. Their Tequila is produced according to 500-year-old traditional regulations.
In their Mezcal (the green bottle) they use both fermented agave juice and the agave pulp (heart) in the distillation. This creates a richer and more complex Mezcal. It is distilled three times in old traditional potstills made of clay. This is a very slow and labor intensive process, but adds an extra flavor graduation to the distillate.
This Mezcal is aged in white American oak barrels. It gives the special complex notes that characterize Mezcal. After 60 days of cask aging, the Master Distiller completes his craft and Sangre de Vida Mezcal is ready for bottling in the characteristic green skull bottles. Buy Mezcal here
