Bozal artesanal Chino Verde Mezcal
On the steep precarious hillsides of Oaxaca, Guerrero and Durango varieties of agave, indigenous to the region, grow wild and are heavily sought after by the local mezcaleros. These varietals produce flavors that are exotically intense, with rich earth tones and savory smokiness. From the heart of the maguey these flavors are traditionally extracted to produce mezcal that is wildly refined. Because we at bozal believe that something wild produces a far richer spirit.
Chino Verde is a wild, extremely rare agave foraged from the Sierra Madre del Sur mountains. This agave can grow quite large and is usually harvested between seven and nine years of age. The concentration of sugar in the fully mature agave produces an extremely powerful mezcal.
The Chino Verde mezcal offers aromas of earth, dried herbs and burlap with a soft smokiness. Ancho chile coats the palate, accompanied by flavors of charred meats and slight sweetness with a viscous finish.
