A traditionally crafted Central Mexico Mezcal balanced to walk effortlessly from dram to cocktail and back again.
The story of Los Siete Misterios Mezcal starts in about 2005 when brothers Julio and Eduardo Mestre were vacationing on the beaches of Oaxaca, Mexico, from their home in Mexico City. It became a tradition for them to sample fine Mezcals on their trips and they developed a passion for the Spirit along with a desire to preserve the traditions and terroir that gave each bottle its unique character. This passion bloomed into a business, and the brothers co-founded Siete Misterios in 2010. They have built their family business up to a wide range of artisanal Mezcals, each a work of art unto itself.
All of the Mezcals from Siete Misterios come from a small region around Sola de Vega — except one. Doba-Yej is a Zapotec word for the Espadin agave plant. Siete Misterios Doba-Yej Mezcal is a 100% Espadin Mezcal designed to fill an important gap in the market — a Spirit balanced for both sipping naturally while performing in the most modern craft cocktails. And this particular Spirit is also the first from Siete Misterios to be distilled in copper alembic stills — yielding a complex, fruit-forward Mezcal at 45.5% ABV.
"Siete Misterios" translates as "Seven Mysteries." The term is a familiar one from Japanese mythology and various online games. There is no explanation from the brothers on why they chose this as the name for their line of Mezcal Spirits.
