Uno Joven Mezcal
We challenge you to find a better Mezcal than this. Mezcal Unión’s Uno Joven is a glorious and gentle mixture of black pepper, pine needles, citrus, vanilla, waxy candle smoke and artichoke hearts roasted in butter. Sip it alongside tacos to intensify that chilli heat or mix it into any cocktails you’d usually use Tequila in to add more depth. Crafted in San Baltazar Guelavila, Oaxaca, by Mezcalero Pedro Hernández; he uses 8-year-old Espadín and 20-year-old wild Cirial agave. The piñas are roasted in pits for 3-4 days, they are then crushed and the juice is fermented, before being distilled in log-fired copper stills. Mezcal is typically made by small-scale producers in mind-bogglingly tiny batches. Mezcal Unión bring these Mezcal maestros together to create, as the name suggests, a union. Its members are like a family. They benefit from more work and growth, and you benefit from a better spirit and price. Always ensuring that the product remains artisanal, Mezcal Unión also ensure agave is grown sustainably and protect the wellbeing of the families involved.
