Los Siete Misterios is a Mexican company founded in 2010 with a single ideal: to rescue the tradition of mezcal, while stimulating the micro-economies and promoting the rural cultures producing mezcal.
That is how we link the past to the present and find it again, combining the best of both worlds, we respect pure mezcal, genuine Mexican heritage essence.
Inspired by the legends and mysteries of Mexico, our land, we decided to begin a search for a drink that faithfully represents the customs, culture and the passion they have for their products.
Mezcal Los Siete Misterios is the result of this search. Los Siete Misterios produce a range of single varietal mezcals from agaves that are harvested between 7 to 9 years of age, and roasted in a pit over a wood fire. After roasting and a 72 hour rest, the pinas are removed and ground using the horse-drawn mill, and then fermented in wooden vats for the period of 2-3 days. The mash is then distilled in copper and clay stills. All the expressions are released in very limited quantities, and hand numbered bottles.
