The Heritage Behind the Spirit

A Century of Distillation Excellence

Hacienda de Bañuelos, also known as Los Potrillos Mezcal, carries a legacy dating back to 1915. Nestled in the state of Zacatecas, just north of Jalisco, this fourth-generation taberna is at the forefront of the mezcal revival in the region. With a history deeply rooted in agave distillation, the Bañuelos family continues championing the artisanal spirit, infusing each bottle with southern Zacatecas's distinct minerality and terroir.

Crafting Tradition: From Agave to Glass

Artisanal Methods for a Superior Mezcal

The journey of Hacienda de Bañuelos Tequilana from the field to your glass is a testament to traditional craftsmanship. Utilizing the revered Blue Weber agave, the process begins with steam cooking in a stainless steel autoclave for 24 hours, ensuring a gentle extraction of flavors. The agave hearts are then crushed with a roller mill, a step that paves the way for natural fermentation. Wild yeasts and spring water from Zacatecas collaborate in this stage, with no additives or accelerators, culminating in a mezcal that's double distilled in an alembic still for utmost purity. 

A Taste of Zacatecas Terroir

Unique Characteristics that Set it Apart

What truly sets Hacienda de Bañuelos Tequilana apart is its distinctive flavor profile, a reflection of the mineral-driven terroir of Zacatecas. While it shares similarities with tequila through Blue Weber agave, its unique production method introduces a novel spectrum of flavors. The wild fermentation process and the inherent mineral traits of the region contribute to mezcal with unparalleled complexity and depth, offering a sipping experience that's both refreshing and profound.

What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?

Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.

Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.

One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.

Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.

In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
