Santiago Matatlán. Oaxaca, Mexico. You know where this is headed.

Straight into the heart of the Mezcal capital of the world, of course. It's among those mystical rolling hills that Rosaluna Mezcal began its journey ― and it's where it travels from today. It's there that the delicious Mexican Spirit is crafted with 3 simple ingredients: agaves, water, and plenty of love. All-natural and hand-made, the brand is the brainchild of a young indie team of 4 Americans. They reached out to JJ and Frida Méndez León Jiménez, siblings from Oaxaca, Mexico. With 6 generations of Mezcal-making in the family, the Spirit practically runs in their veins. Nothing could go wrong!

And nothing did. The duo grows, farms, ferments, and distills the Spirit right there in the heart of Oaxaca, planting and tending to the baby agaves that take 8 years to fully mature. After the harvest, they are roasted in the ground, milled, fermented, and double distilled. The finished Mezcal is bright and fruity with that signature earthiness and touch of smoke that makes it such a delight. They say it's equally suited for the curious and experienced, a perfect companion for dancing and dining. The sensible thing to do is grab a bottle for each scenario.

Appearance / Color
Clear

Nose / Aroma / Smell
Bright aromas greet the nose with citrus, tropical fruit, pineapple, and pear. Delightfully fruity just about hits the mark.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
It's on the palate that a nuanced and layered complexity reveals itself. Of course, there's that signature earthiness and the roasted agave sweetness, but then there's also caramel, spice, ginger, and cinnamon.

Finish
Finishes silky-smooth with agave and a touch of smoke.

All Tequila is Mezcal, but not all Mezcal is Tequila.
While Mezcal is produced all across Mexico, most of the Mezcal we see is produced in the state of Oaxaca. Interestingly, over 70% of Mezcal is made from the Espadín agave—even though more than 20 types of agave are used to make Mezcal.

Espadín. That word means “sword” in Spanish because the leaves look like a mass of swords projecting out of the plant. Espadín Mezcals are most common because it has been the easiest agave to cultivate.
