HOW WE MAKE IT

A SOURCE OF PRIDE FOR MEXICO, RECUERDO MEZCAL IS ONE OF THE BEST SELLERS IN THE INDUSTRY. RECUERDO IS SPANISH FOR REMEMBRANCE, KEEP SAKE, REMINISCENCE, MEMENTO, SOUVENIR. RECUERDO MEZCAL IS A MEMORABLE PRODUCT OF OUR OAXACAN AND MEXICAN TRADITIONS. IT REFLECTS AND TRANSPORTS OUR CULTURE, IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD.

THE SACRED AGAVE PLANT

RECUERDO MEZCAL IS CRAFTED WITH TRADITIONAL TECHNIQUES AND COOKED OVER RIVER ROCKS WITH CERTIFIED PINE AND OAK WOODS FOR AN ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY PRODUCT. THE RIVER ROCKS ARE COLLECTED FROM THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF OAXACA’S CENTRAL VALLEY RIVERS.

THE WOODS UTILIZED AT OUR OAXACA DISTILLERY ARE CERTIFIED BY THE SEMARNAT (MINISTRY OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION), TO ENSURE THAT WE TAKE CARE OF THE PLANET’S BIODIVERSITY THROUGH A RESPONSIBLE AND SUSTAINABLE MANAGEMENT OF THE FORESTS.

HOW YOU DRINK IT

WELCOME TO THE NO-SHOT ZONE: RECUERDO MEZCAL IS MEANT TO BE SAVORED UNHURRIEDLY, IN OTHER WORDS, SIPPED WITH BESITOS (SPANISH FOR KISSES). MEZCAL IS TRADITIONALLY ENJOYED IN A “VELADORA” GLASS (SPANISH FOR CANDLE HOLDER). FOR CENTURIES, VELADORAS HAVE BEEN USED TO HOLD CANDLES IN CHURCHES, HENCE ITS NAME. IN FACT, A PROPER VELADORA GLASS SHOULD DISPLAY A CRUCIFIX AT THE BOTTOM. NOW THAT’S A RITUAL.

RECUERDO MEZCAL IS GREAT IN COCKTAILS BUT WE TEND TO LIKE IT NEAT OR, WHY NOT, ALONGSIDE A COOL CRISP BEER.

AND LET’S NOT FORGET ABOUT THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM – OR SHOULD WE SAY THE AGAVE WORM IN THE BOTTLE. YES, YOU CAN SWALLOW IT. AND, YES, IT IS SOMEWHAT OF AN EXOTIC DELICACY, BUT IT DOES ADD A SILKY TEXTURE AND FLAVOR COMPLEXITY THAT IS QUITE APPEALING.

OAXACA, MY HOME AWAY FROM HOME.

I AM FROM MIAMI BUT I AM BIG FAN OF RECUERDO MEZCAL BECAUSE IT COMES STRAIGHT OUT OF OAXACA, THE CAPITAL OF MEZCAL.

WIN FREQUENTLY. DRINK TRADITIONALLY.
