Mal Bien Sierra Negra Ramos Mezcal
Victor and his son Emanuel are the 3rd and 4th generations of the Ramos family to produce mezcal in the Miahuatlán District of Oaxaca, an area famous for its abundance and diversity of A. karwinskii sub-species (madrecuixe, tobaxiche, etc.). The community of Mengoli de Morelos where they live and work has a population of just under 200 people.
This batch was produced using 8 and 9 year old Sierra Negras, one of the faster maturing A. Americana variants sourced from several plots of land near the Ramos home and palenque. Bottled at 47.4% abv.
