Method / Background Notes
Like all of Mezcal Nacional’s bottles this one is named after a significant year in Mexican history. The 1943 refers to the birth of Michoacán’s Parícutin volcano which emerged from a corn field to destroy local villages. “Mezcal Nacional 1943 was created as a tribute to the great people of Michoacán who never lost the courage and determination to persevere after seeing their towns buried by lava. They carried on and built new towns next to the towns that remain buried by lava.“
