Despite its ultra-modern looks, this eye-catching mezcal is produced with the utmost artisanal care and traditional methods. Verde Momento’s dedicated craft distillery opened in the Oaxacan village of Tlacolula in 2017 and is capable of producing 7,000l of batch-distilled mezcal a year.
Verde Momento is made from organically grown, 8-year-old Espadín agave. It is cooked using three different types of wood – ocote, red oak and pepper tree – to achieve a complex, balanced flavour profile that makes it work brilliantly in cocktails.
After Tahona stone milling, natural fermentation with its own yeast in ayacahuite pine vats and double distillation in maestro mezcalero Doroteo Garcia’s small copper still, it is bottled at 42% ABV.
Every batch of Verde Momento features a unique label designed by a contemporary Mexican artist. It is another collaboration aimed at supporting the local culture of the mezcal-producing regions – be it farmers, distillers or artists.
