Sombra is an artesanal 100% Espadin agave mezcal handcrafted in Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca, Mexico.Sombra is one of the few mezcal brands that owns and operates its own palenque (distillery), which ensures consistent quality and eco-friendly production methods. Each step of production, from fermentation to distillation, has been reimagined to reduce its environmental impact. Sombra has a spicy, fruity and smokey nose with a high note of citrus. It is smooth and warming to the palate, with a clean and fruit-driven finish. Un-rectified and distilled to 45% alc by vol.
This smoky mezcal is reminiscent of peated Scotch. It opens with fleeting vanilla-almond sweetness and quickly accelerates into a smoky midpalate, finishing with menthol, black pepper and an earthy hint of dark chocolate. Sip or mix. Best Buy.
