Espadín Agave


In the mountains near San Juan and San Luis del Rio near Oaxaca, we harvest Espadín agave at elevations up to 8,000 feet. We believe that elevation is key and have found the higher we go in the Sierra, the more elegant the resultant spirit.

How To Drink


Sombra Joven can be enjoyed by sipping straight or in your favorite cocktails. Using Mezcal in traditional Tequila cocktails works well, but Mezcal is a versatile base spirit that adds an extra dimension of savory, smoky character & depth to mixed drinks.
