Lejana Y Sola Mezcal Artesanal
Lejana Y Sola is an ensemble of Espadin and the rare, wild Cuishe Agave that grows in the mountainside hills of Oaxaca. Striking a beautiful balance of light smoke and sweet agave fruit, the mezcal is at once earthy, spicy and subtly musky with a lingering finish. So drinkable, this mezcal made it onto Vinepair’s “Top 50 Spirits of 2021” list and Drinkhacker’s “Top 10 Tequilas & Mezcals of 2021” list.
This Mezcal Artesenal is distilled in a small family owned palenque using the ancient artisanal method with no electricity. The Espadin and Cuishe agaves are roasted over oak in a stone-lined fire pit, crushed by a horse-drawn tahona, fermented in wooden tanks and double distilled in a copper alambique – a truly medieval technology that results in a mysteriously beautiful liquid that is a pleasure to sip and savor.
