Zacatecas is the state in Mexico just north of Jalisco with a long history of agave distillation. The Bañuelos family are a fourth generation taberna(distillery) in the southernmost part of the region.The label is reflective of Jaime and his son Fortino’s passion for working with horses. This exceptional Mezcal has some similar characteristics to tequila due to its use of Blue Weber agave and steam cooking but the wild fermentation and distinct minerality trait of Zacatecas sets it apart.
