Inspired by the celebration of life,
Cráneo Organic Mezcal is a single estate artisanal mezcal handcrafted by
local maestro mezcaleros and agave aficionado David Ravandi in the
heartland of Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca. Honoring century old Mexican
traditions, the sacred skull depicted on our label was inspired by the
Aztec Goddess Mictecacihuatl 'Meek-teka-see-wahdl', the guardian of the
bones, which symbolizes strength and influence. In turn, our artisanal
mezcal derives its strength and character from agave espadin.
Classically structured on the nose with sweet barbecue smoke
and hints of citrus, Cráneo is light and silky in body with flavors of
orange and grapefruit peel, green banana, and spun sugar that punctuate a
modestly-sweet smokiness. Cráneo Organic Mezcal begins with hand
selecting 100% organic agave grown at 5,600 ft. Harvested when fully
matured, charred pit oven roasted piñas are then crushed by a massive
stone tahona to extract their sweet juice. Once natural fermentation
occurs, small batches of Cráneo Organic Mezcal are distilled twice in
copper pot stills capturing bold, complex flavors of agave, rich
fermentation notes and smoke.
Dedicated to the preservation of ancient Oaxaca methods of
artisanal distillation while sustaining the highest quality of
production, founder David Ravandi combines the experience and respect of
those who have produced the finest mezcal for generations with his own
vision and passion.
