Mezcal Lajita is a classic smoky and earthy Mezcal produced by the renowned Licores Veracruz in Oaxaca, Mexico. Triple distilled and aged in oak casks for over five months, which produces a ‘rested’ taste and quality. Every bottle contains a single agave worm, which is a traditional guarantee of Mezcal quality. This 100% agave Mezcal was awarded the coveted title ‘Best Mezcal in the USA Market’ in 1997, which is a result of the founder Don Jose Villanueva, who spent his life developing the smoothest tasting spirits possible. The technique for making Mezcal remains true to the traditions used by the Spanish Conquistadors in the XVI th century, and remarkably little has changed. It consists of five steps : the culture of the plant, cooking in a lined covered hole in the ground or clay oven, pounding, fermenting, and distilling. Most domestic Mezcal (unlike Tequila) is distilled twice and for export markets where a higher quality is required, Mezcal Lajita is distilled three times to eliminate any impurities, especially methanol and excesses of copper which are commonly found in some Mezcal. The mezcal is then left to mature for a minimum of 3 months to over a year.
