Mezcal has been making its mark in the spirits scene for over a decade. Originating from Mexico, this beverage offers a captivating blend of tradition, flavor, and cultural heritage.
As the global demand and exportation of agave-based spirits continue to rise, an increasing number of brands are seeking to broaden their range and explore the unique flavor profiles offered by agave. At Sasma, we offer alternatives like 100% Smoked Agave Spirit that are ready to bottle and ship, from 1000 litre IBC to 25,000 litre ISO tanks upon request.
What is Mezcal?
Mezcal, a renowned spirit derived from the agave plant, stands out for its distinct characteristics. Unlike tequila, which is limited to a specific agave variety, mezcal distilleries have the freedom to draw upon over 30 diverse agave types sourced from various regions worldwide. Though the primary ingredients are similar, there are differences in production methods.
How is Mezcal Made?
To craft the finest, Sasma adheres to strict guidelines. Our products meet all certification requirements including ISO 9001, ISO 22000, and Lloyd’s Register.
Mezcal distillate involves mashing, fermenting, and distilling agaves. Traditional mezcal production involves slow-roasting the hearts of the agave, which imparts a smoky flavor. The finished product is available in various classifications including joven, reposado, and añejo varieties, indicating the length of the spirit’s aging period.
Traditional Agave Spirits
Agave spirits are classified by the species of plant from which they are distilled. Each country has its own native agave species and distillation methods. In addition to mezcal, tequila, sotol, and raicilla fall into the category of “agave spirits.”
- Tequila: is a spirit made from the blue agave plant, which grows in hot and arid regions of Mexico.
- Sotol: is made from the Desert Spoon plant, similar to agave but not in the same family.
- Raicilla: is a type of mezcal produced using a different agave species and distillation process.
- Bacanora: is a regional spirit made using a specific agave species called Pacifica.
