Nuestra Soledad is high toned, fruity in character, light bodied, and packaged beautifully.
La Compañía is a small village in the district of Ejutla, southwest of the capital Oaxaca de Juárez, in the Valles Centrales Region. Los Bigotones is the collective name of two small palenques owned and operated by the Hernandez brothers, or “Los Bigotones” (the big mustaches). Their properties are situated on a hilly plateau at an elevation of 5,000 feet above sea level. The steep slopes favor only hearty agaves and the struggle to survive in this harsh growing environment comes through in the complexity of their mezcal. The Hernandez brothers, with their big personalities and large mustaches, have a unique method of distillation which utilizes a single, extended distillation in a modified pot still (called refrescador) which contributes to the unique, bold favor profile of our mezcal Ejutla.
Bright and aromatically complex with white flowers, cilantro and mint on the nose, rich, savory and viscous on the palate with roasted chiles and minerality. The finish is long with a delicate kiss of wood smoke.
