La Jicarita Sierra Negra is produced by Celso Martínez López in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca using 25+ year old maguey Sierra Negra harvested at full maturity. Planted in a steep hillside plot, this agave is cultivated in the high altitude of the Sierra Norte de Oaxaca. The combination of drastic temperature shifts, high elevation desert drainage, and concentrated sunlight produces a mezcal rugged and hearty in character.
This limited edition of Sierra Negra Mezcal produced only 155 cases. This is the first time this mezcal is available outside of Mexico. Aromas of agave, pineapple, banana bread, and pecan with flavors of forest floor, star anise, tobacco leaf, black pepper, and fresh mint, with a full-bodied velvety finish.
