Subheading 2: Roasted to Perfection
Casimiro Perez's commitment to quality begins with the agave hearts. He roasts them in an underground earthen oven for several days, using mesquite and manila tamarind wood. This meticulous roasting process imparts a smoky richness to the mezcal, creating a unique flavor profile.
Subheading 3: From Agave to Bottle
Witness the journey from agave to bottle with Mama Chuy - Madre Cuishe & Tepeztate Mezcal. After roasting, Casimiro mechanically mills the agave hearts, transferring them into Cypress wood vats. Local spring water is used for fermentation, ensuring a connection to the land. The mezcal then undergoes a single distillation in a small Refrescadera copper pot still, capturing the pure essence of the agave.
