Top 10 Mezcals
If you love to seek out rarities, your search has borne fruit – agave cupreata to be exact.
Wahaka uses this rare agave along with time-honored techniques to produce its double-distilled, small-batch Michoacan Capriatos, limited to just 44 bottles per year. The precious liquid is certain to make any agave aficionado swoon, with flavors and aromas of damp earth followed by a soft segue into gentle herbs and citrus lingering on the palate. Proving its dedication to mezcal, Wahaka has also initiated a non-profit organization aimed at reforesting Mexico’s wild agaves, which are currently threatened by over-exploitation.
