Sombra Mezcal Essential Facts

  • This mezcal is a truly small-batch spirit, which is made from organic espadin agave and distilled in the mountain village of San Juan at an elevation of 8,000 feet.
  • The spirit is complex and smoky enough to be sipped, but light and citrusy enough to be mixed in cocktails
  • Sombra is Spanish for “shadow”.

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Kudos

    por que es que ya no se produce el mezcal 100% de maguey ,por que la calidad va empeorando y lo unico que mejora es el envase pero al fin se tira. ahora le sigen agregando halcol de cana el cual le da un sabor terrible. por favor acepten esta critica que les aseguro que es sana. perdones las faltas de ortografia. gracias.

    Del Maguey is no longer associated with or produces for Sombra.

    Now made in San Juan Del Rio.

    Just made a fine Negroni variant with this. 1 part each Campari & Antica formula vermouth + 2 parts mezcal, stirred & strained & garnished with an orange twist.
