Mina Real Mezcal is made in Santa Catarina Minas by the Arrellanes family using a maguey-roasting technique that saves 25,000 pounds of wood per roast – equal to one large tree – using Oaxaca’s most ecological roasting oven. This production method highlights aromatic cooked agave flavors and aromas without charring. The cooked maguey mash is then fermented with wild yeasts, before double-distillation in traditional ceramic pot stills.
