Riazuleño Clasico is made with agave Espadin in San Dionisio Ocotepec, Oaxaca. The agave used in this mezcal are cooked in an underground pit oven and they are distilled twice in a copper column still. This has aromas of ripe tropical fruit, sweet agave, and smoke. The palate is sweet with notes of cinnamon, limestone, and minerals.
Riazuleño Mezcal is a newer release from the Riazul Tequila company, which was founded in 2008. Riazuleño is produced in the foothills of San Dionisio Ocotepec in Oaxaca on a single estate, owned and operated by Maestro Mezcalero Gelasio Cruz.
