Sombra is an award-winning mezcal that is dedicated to sustainable and environmentally friendly production. Sombra Mezcal is made from 100% organic Espadin Agave. After growing up to 10 years, the hearts are harvested and roasted for 2 days over oak wood fires that heat cooking stones in a stone-lined pit. The roasted agaves are then crushed by a limestone tahona, fermented with only native yeast, and distilled in copper stills to create a refined, smooth and balanced Mezcal at the traditional strength of 90-proof.
Sombra owns and operates its own distillery; resulting in consistently delicious mezcal created using sustainabile production methods.
