||Mezcal / Tequila
Despite its ultra-modern looks, this eye-catching mezcal is produced with the utmost artisanal care and traditional methods.
Verde Momento is made with 8 year old agave Espadin by mezcalero Doroteo Garcia in Tlacolula, Oaxaca. The agaves are cooked in an underground oven using ocote, holm oak, and pepper tree which give the mezcal a smokiness desirable for cocktails. After cooking for about 5 days, the agaves are tahona-crushed before being put into 1,500 litre fermentation vats. The natural fermentation can last from 7 to 30 days depending on the production season, the amount of rain, and variations in temperature. Finally, it is doubled distilled in a 500 litre copper still.
Verde Momento is packaged in many different labels. Every batch of Mezcal Verde features a unique label designed by a contemporary Mexican artist. It is another collaboration aimed at supporting the local culture of the mezcal-producing regions â€“ be it farmers, distillers or artists. And it captures the essence of any good drink â€“ enjoy the moment and have fun together.
