An artisinal universe beyond TequilaMezcal is a culture of the land. Centuries-old traditions. Rustic hills. Remote villages. Time. Sun. Soil. Passion.Tequila is made from one type of agave, whereas Mezcal can be made from many types- thriving in the wild or farmed in estates, grown in different regions of Mexico, each with a different climate and elevation. The mezcaleros use varying techniques in the production process, a tradition passed down from one generation to the next, dating back to the Indian tribes from centuries ago. Each Mezcal has its own unique texture and flavor, the essence of the family and land it represents.Mezcal Marca Negra Selections, Oaxaca MexicoThe highlands of Oaxaca, a state in southern Mexico, has a strong tradition of Mezcal production dating back to the 16th century. The small village of San Luis del Rio encapsulates artisanal tradition. Gravel roads lead the way through the Sierra Madre mountains to its 3,300-ft elevation above sea level. The population of primarily indigenous people is less than 500. In the air, the smell of smoking wood heating stones in an earthen oven cooking agave pif1as. A horse hauls a stone wheel to prepare the mash for fermentation. Copper pot-stills heat the fermented agave above wood fires. The significance of the land, the agave, the time taken for production and the keen skill of each master distiller is beautifully represented in every pure, authentic Marca Negra Mezcal selection.The ambassador of authentic, artisanal MezcalHowever remote the location- the Oaxacan Sierra or the desert of Durango, Marca Negra will journey there to acquire a worthy expression of traditional, artisanal Mezcal in order to bottle it in its true, original form. Marca Negra Mezcal is unaltered, with an uncompromising approach to high quality production, faithful to the tradition of master distillers from generations before.
