About Zignum Mezcal | The Real Spirit of Mexico
Mezcal is a traditional Mexican spirit produced by cooking, fermenting and distilling extracted juices from Green agave plants native to the state of Oaxaca. With more than 400 years of history, it is Mexico´s oldest spirit, an integral part of Mexican culture full of legends, history, flavors and folklore. By linking the spirit of the original artisanal process with new-school Mezcaleros and modern techniques, Zignum Mezcal produces the most refined, and premium form of mezcal – stripped of excess and primed for mixability. Zignum Mezcal extracts the juices of the agave plant before steam-cooking them, which eliminates the smoky taste characteristic of traditional mezcals and reduces the levels of methanol and saturated alcohols. Unlike other mezcals, the result is a silky smooth spirit that can be appreciated in cocktails as well as sipped neat.
