Crema de Mezcal – San Luis del Rio

For Women Only… and… A Few Strong Men

Crema de Mezcal, is a combination of Miel de Maguey (unfermented syrup of the roast agave) and Mezcal San Luis del Rio – double distilled from 100% mature agave Espadin, produced the original, natural 400-year-old, hand-crafted way. Crema de Mezcal has a nose of roast maguey, with vanilla and pear, a creamy almond, apple, coffee, pineapple pallate and a long sweet smoky orange finish. As the five day maguey roast is uncovered, the Miel of a few of the sweetest magueys are pressed out. Ten percent Miel de Maguey is added to ninety percent San Luis del Rio resulting in an 80 proof Crema de Mezcal.
