On the steep hillsides of Oaxaca, Guerrero and Durango, Mexico, agaves grow wild and are highly sought after by local mezcaleros. These varieties of agave are very aromatic, with rich earthy notes and a savory smoky flavor. The heart of these agaves is extracted to produce a mezcal of extreme refinement.
At Bozal, they believe that a wild product makes a very rich and interesting spirit.
