HOW WE MAKE IT

A source of pride for Oaxaca and Mexico, Recuerdo Mezcal is one of the best sellers in the industry. Recuerdo is Spanish for remembrance, keepsake, reminiscence, memento, souvenir.

Recuerdo Mezcal is the essence of a vibrant and colorful Oaxaca; it’s attitude, character and pride in a bottle.

Recuerdo Mezcal is a memorable product of our traditions. It reflects and transports our culture, in every sense of the word.

Recuerdo Mezcal is made from choice Agave Espadín plants and is crafted with traditional techniques, cooked over river rocks with certified pine and oak woods to achieve an environmentally friendly product.

The river rocks are collected from the higher elevations of Oaxaca’s central valley rivers. Rocks and woods utilized at our distillery in Oaxaca, the Capital of Mezcal, are certified by the SEMARNAT (Mexican ministry of environmental protection), to ensure that we take care of the planet’s biodiversity through a responsible and sustainable management of the local forests. Mezcal is a protected designation of origin.

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.
