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.




Sombra owns and operates its own Palenque (distillery), which provides consistent quality and eco-friendly production methods. Each step of production, from fermentation to distillation, has been reimagined to reduce its environmental impact.

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.
