Mezcal de Leyendas San Luis Potosi is part of the core line of expressions. Mezcal production in San Luis Potosí is unique in Mexico, because it is done predominantly in ‘Haciendas’, using semi industrial methods dating to 18th & 19th centuries. In this rocky and arid lands, few agaves can grow as well as the salmiana. Commonly known as verde, this wild agave endemic to the San Luis Potosi central plateau has one of the most unique flavor profiles of any agave.
This large agave takes between 7-10 years to reach maturity, and on average takes about 16-19kg of agave to produce 1 liter of mezcal. Master mezcalero, Juan Jose Hernandez, comes from a long line of mezcal producers whom have been producing in this very hacienda for over 100 years
