Marvelous Mezcals Arrive at Masters of Malt

Marvelous Mezcals – Acclaimed El Recuerdo and ZIGNUM® Mezcal Brands Arrive at Masters of Malt.

With mezcal once again tipped to be a big drink trend of the summer, two new brands have landed in the UK and launched in Masters of Malt.

Mezcal is defined as any agave-based liquor and can be made from over 30 varieties of agave, such as Espadín, Tobalá, Tobaziche, Tepeztate, Arroqueño and Blue Agave, which is famously used to make tequila.

Delicious when simply sipped and savoured but just as versatile in cocktails, Mezcal’s smoky nuances are also fantastic alongside food.

El Recuerdo Mezcal

El Recuerdo Mezcal is the essence of a vibrant and colourful Oaxaca; it’s attitude, character and pride in a bottle. El Recuerdo Mezcal is one of the bestsellers in the industry. Recuerdo is Spanish for remembrance, keepsake, reminiscence, memento, souvenir.

Marvelous Mezcals - El Recuerdo Mezcal

El Recuerdo Mezcal is made from choice Agave Espadín plants and is crafted with traditional techniques. It has a smoky flavor, a characteristic of the traditional Mezcals of the region and an attribute connoisseurs seek. It is cooked over river rocks with certified pine and oak woods to achieve an environmentally-friendly product. The river rocks are collected from the higher elevations of Oaxaca’s central valley rivers. Rocks and woods utilised at their distillery in Oaxaca, the Capital of Mezcal, are certified by the SEMARNAT (Mexican ministry of environmental protection) to ensure that care is taken of the planet’s biodiversity through a responsible and sustainable management of the local forests. Mezcal is a protected designation of origin.
