Ojo De Dios Mezcal
Ojo de Dios (God’s eye) is the eye to the soul of Mexico, celebrated in Huichol art and deeply rooted in the ancient traditions of the indigenous people of Mexico. 30,000 beads are hand placed one-by-one over a layer of native beeswax.
The agave for Espadin mezcal is sustainably farmed in estate in the region of San Luis del Rio, harvested it at full maturation (aged 7-8 years) then the process begins by cooking the hearts of the agave plant for up to 10 days (depending on weather conditions) in an underground oven using only local oak wood. The cooked hearts are then crushed with a Tahona pulled by Chicharito estate donkey. The agave fibres and juices are then naturally fermented on small pine wood containers using local indigenous airborne bacteria. Finally it is double distilled in our 250 litres copper still pots where its transformed to delicious Ojo de Dios Mezcal.
