Publisher’s Picks – Best Mezcal Brands
This month, Sacacuento Anejo Mezcal was given four kisses, sending Merideth “head over heals in love” with one of the best mezcal brands in America.
History of Fine Mezcal
In the early 1920’s Emilio and Agripina Maldonado farmed land north of Oaxaca (Rancho Buenaventura) where they raised their ten children and served as leaders in the local town of Santa Maria Tinu. As part of Emilio’s work, he dabbled in mezcal when he could grow agave on his land.
As travelers would pass through their ranch, they would stop and taste Emilio’s mezcal. As they sat and shared the mezcal they would tell great stories. Those who told the best stories were called “Sacacuento.”
Where to Buy Fine Mezcal
Sacacuento Mezcal is available at many fine locations, including online.
