Verde Momento is made with 8-year-old agave Espadin by mezcalero Doroteo Garcia in Tlacolula, Oaxaca. The agaves are cooked in an underground oven using ocote, holm oak, and Peppertree which give the mezcal a smokiness desirable for cocktails. After cooking for about 5 days, the agaves are tahona-crushed before being put into 1,500-liter fermentation vats. The natural fermentation can last from 7 to 30 days depending on the production season, the amount of rain, and variations in temperature. Finally, it is doubled distilled in a 500-liter copper still.
This mezcal has notes of grass, soft smoke, and fresh peach. Verde Momento is packaged in many different labels, however, they are all the same mezcal, illustrated by different local mexican artists that the distillery works with.
