A well-balanced Oaxaca Mezcal that walks the line between brine and zest like a champ.
Cultured Spirits was founded in 2018 in San Juan del Río, Oaxaca, Mexico. Their mission is to deliver outstanding Spirits crom across Latin American and around the world, but right now their two brands come from their own backyard in central Mexico — Pluma Negra Mezcals and Cihuatán Rums. And their company is committed to green initiatives with 1% of their annual sales being donated to environmental causes.
This is the "White Label" version of Pluma Negra Espadín Mezcal at 40% ABV. It is crafted from 100% Espadin Angustifolia agave from Oaxaca. The piñas are slow roasted in a conical earthen oven and then ground by tahona mill stone, and naturally fermented for up to two weeks. Then it is double-distilled by Master Mezcalero Rodolfo Hernández. It is a beautifully-bottled, traditional expression of the Mexican heritage.
In Spanish, "Pluma Negra" means "black feather."
