Producer Notes: Sombra Mezcal

Sombra Mezcal is a premium spirits producer that specializes in creating artisanal mezcal. The company was founded in 2006 by Richard Betts, a renowned sommelier and spirits expert, and is based in Oaxaca, Mexico. Sombra Mezcal is known for its commitment to sustainability and ethical production practices, as well as its dedication to preserving the traditional methods of mezcal production.

Mezcal is a distilled spirit made from the agave plant, which is native to Mexico. Unlike tequila, which is made exclusively from blue agave, mezcal can be made from a variety of agave species. Sombra Mezcal uses only 100% organic, hand-harvested agave, which is roasted in underground pits and distilled in copper stills. This traditional method of production gives Sombra Mezcal its distinctive smoky flavor and complex aroma.

In addition to its flagship mezcal, Sombra Mezcal also produces a range of other spirits, including a tequila blanco and a gin. The tequila blanco is made from 100% blue agave and is aged for six months in oak barrels, giving it a smooth, rich flavor. The gin is made using a blend of botanicals, including juniper, coriander, and citrus, and is distilled in small batches to ensure maximum flavor and complexity.

Sombra Mezcal has won numerous awards for its spirits, including a gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and a double gold medal at the New York World Wine and Spirits Competition. The company is also committed to giving back to the community, and works closely with local farmers and artisans to support sustainable agriculture and traditional crafts.

Overall, Sombra Mezcal is a premium spirits producer that is known for its commitment to sustainability, ethical production practices, and traditional methods of mezcal production.

Mezcal Varieties

In Mexico, mezcal (also known as mezcal de agave) is a distilled alcoholic beverage derived from the agave plant, a slow-growing succulent that is native to Mexico and parts of Texas and is used to make mezcal. Mezcal was first produced in the 16th century by the conquistadors, who, as invading armies are wont to do in hostile territory, made getting drunk a top priority and experimented with distilling whiskey from whatever they could find in the area they were occupying.

The history of mezcal-making evolved over time to become an essential element of Mexican culture, but it wasn't until Prohibition drove thirsty American visitors to Mexico in pursuit of a legal buzz that mezcal became widely known to drinkers in the United States and around the world.

Mezcal can be prepared from any of the more than 30 different types of agave. Tobalá, tobaziche, tepeztate, arroqueo, and espadn are the most frequent agave varieties used for mezcal production. Espadn is the most prevalent agave variety and accounts for up to 90 percent of all mezcal production.

Tequila Varieties

First produced in the 16th century, when Spanish conquerors ran out of cognac during their expedition to the New World, tequila is made by distilling the juice from the heart of a blue agave native to Jalisco, Mexico. Tequila comes in a variety of colors, from the transparent and unrestrained, known as Blanco, to the darkest aged in Reposado, Anejo and Extra Anejo vats. Popular as a main ingredient in refreshing margaritas, it is also commonly consumed pure or with the addition of lemon and salt.
