History and Pedigree

Origen Raíz del Espiritu Mezcal represents a harmonious blend of two families' legacies: the Saravia family of Durango, known for their efforts to boost the local economy, and the Cortés family of Oaxaca, with six generations of mezcal production knowledge. This partnership, forged by Asis Cortés and Bildo Saravia, unites tradition and passion, bringing together the best of both worlds to produce a mezcal that is as rich in heritage as it is in flavor.

Production Highlights

The 'Cenizo Mezcal con Pecho de Venado' is meticulously crafted by mezcalero Ignacio Grijalva Santiago, alongside Cosme Gabriel Simental and Noe Ramirez Varela, at Rancho El Ojo. Situated near the Sierra de Órganos National Park and at an elevation of 6,350 feet, the ranch's environment plays a crucial role in developing the agave's unique profile. The production process involves traditional methods such as smoking the agave in underground ovens, crushing by a mule-drawn tahona, fermenting in open-air oak tanks, and double distillation in copper stills, ensuring a mezcal of unparalleled purity and depth.
