Pale straw hue. Pungent spice, wood, and mineral aromas. A rounded, supple attack leads to a smooth, medium-bodied, exotically peppery finish. Shows very little burn. Drying, persistent finish. Great complexity, with an earthy array of flavours.

Mezcal is the distilled juice of the Agave cactus. It has been enjoyed by the Mexicans since the middle of the 16th century.

Agave worms, which live inside every cactus, have long been a popular delicacy in Mexico. Every bottle of Monte Alban Mezcal contains a worm.

Producer Information

The Sazerac Company is a large privately held and family-operated alcoholic beverages company with headquarters in Metairie, Louisiana. It is the largest distilling company in the United States. It owns and produces a large and diversified portfolio of beverage brands, and it owns and operates a number of distilling companies. Its distilleries include the Barton Distillery (in Bardstown, Kentucky), the Buffalo Trace Distillery (in Frankfort, Kentucky), and the A. Smith Bowman Distillery (a microdistillery in Fredericksburg, Virginia).' The products of the company and its subsidiaries include various types of whiskey, vodka, gin, tequila, rum, brandy, cognac, cocktails, cordials, liqueurs, 'shooters', and wine. The company is reportedly controlled by the chairman of its Board of Directors, William Goldring.
In June 2009, the company stated that the main focus of its business is bourbon (a product that is primarily distilled, aged, and bottled in Kentucky), and its activities in New Orleans are mostly administrative.
The company primarily traces its founding to the purchase of a bar known as the Sazerac Coffee House in 1869 by Thomas H. Handy (and Bloomberg Businessweek similarly lists the founding date of the company as 1870). After this purchase, Handy's company began to acquire and market brands of liquor. According to the company, the Sazerac Coffee House itself was named after a cocktail called the Sazerac that was created in the mid-1800s by a Creole immigrant named Antoine Peychaud, who operated a pharmacy on the French Quarter's Royal Street in 1838. The company publishes a Sazerac recipe and produces a Peychaud's Bitters named after Peychaud, which is an essential ingredient in the Sazerac cocktail.
