The family of Mezcals de la Hacienda de Jaral de Berrio is one of the most emblematic among the Mezcal world due to its historical background. The Hacienda de Jaral de Berrio is located in the historic borough of San Felipe Torres Mochas, Guanajuato.
Its origins date back to the late 16th century, and the production of Mezcal since 1764, when it was then known as aguardiente criolle de Jaral, according to the bibliographic data and historical stock inventories. Today, Jaral de Berrio Mezcals are produced rigorously under the same methods and are still bottled at the main compound of the hacienda.
A surprisingly sweet nose develops vegetal notes of roasted agave, red pepper and pine on the palate, before a long finish of cracked black pepper and caramel.
