Mayalen Borrego / Cupreata Mezcal Joven (DC ONLY)

Mayalen Borrego / Cupreata Mezcal Joven (DC ONLY)


mex / 98 proof / 750 ml 


This is a rarer Mezcal made in the pechuga style, but with a lamb leg instead, and wild Cupreata agave.

Mayalen Borrego is made from wild agave Cupreata. This mezcal is Guerrero’s answer to the mezcal Pechuga from Oaxaca. Their mezcalero starts with the same Wild Cupreata base and then adds nuts, fruits, and spices after the second distillation. This infusion is then distilled a third time with a freshly butchered leg of lamb suspended in the still. The result is meaty, spicy, herbal, and balanced. This variety is complex with a silken texture. Earthen flavors with floral
and citric notes linger on the palate long after each sip. This mezcal is triple-distilled and its exclusive recipe has been used by the maestro Mezcalero’s family for many generations. Mayalen Borrego has an alcohol content of 49%.
