A Harmonious Blend of Wild Agave

Introducing the Hacienda Oponguio Ensamble Joven Mezcal, a premium spirit that embodies the true spirit of Mexican craftsmanship. This exquisite mezcal is a blend of 70% Agave cupreata and 30% Agave inaequidens; both handpicked from the wild agaves of Erongaricuaro, Michoacán. This unique combination creates a mezcal with a robust and refined flavor profile, making it a perfect choice for those who appreciate the complex, rich taste of authentic mezcal.

The Art of Mezcal Making   

The creation of Hacienda Oponguio Ensamble Joven Mezcal is a testament to the skill and passion of its master mezcaleros. Each agave plant is selected for its maturity, ensuring the optimal flavor and quality of the mezcal. The traditional process of roasting and fermenting the agaves, followed by a meticulous double distillation, results in a mezcal that is both smooth and full of character. This spirit celebrates the master mezcaleros' expertise and dedication to their craft.

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.
