Meteoro is a high quality Hand - made Mezcal , rigorously crafted according to ancient Oaxacan traditions. Hand-picked agaves are cooked in earthen oven pits with red-hot river stones, previously heated with mezquite wood. Hence the smoky flavour. After several days of cooking, the roasted pinas are crushed with a huge mule-drawn stone called Tahona.Fermentation occurs naturally in wooden vats, by airborne bacteria. No yeasts or artificial methods are ever applied.Meteoro is then twice distilled in copper pot stills and levelled down to an agreeable 45% alcohol volume.
