Quick Overview

The Scorpion range of mezcals is handcrafted in the village of San Agustin de las Juntas in Oaxaca, Mexico from mature Espadine and Barril agaves and purified water. After harvesting, the sugar rich agaves are baked over charcoal in rock-lined pit ovens for 4 days before being shredded by a horse-drawn tahona wheel and transferred to a large wooden tank. Fermentation is precipitated by natural airborne yeast, a process that takes up to several weeks. The second distillation occurs in small, copper, wood-fired pot stills. Each 80-proof mezcal is presented with a scorpion exoskeleton inside the bottle. It's FDA approved and is perfectly safe to eat. Scorpion Mezcal 100% Agave 5 Year Old is a luxurious spirit of remarkable depth and complexity. Usually fermented agave mash is distilled twice but this single barrel mezcal is triple-distilled and aged 5 years in small oak barrels. Scorpion Gran Reserva is presented in hand-numbered, French glass decanters with a museum-grade arachnid inside. It's top-notch from start to spicy, slightly smoky finish. The reserve mezcal is elegant and sublime. Scorpion Mezcals are rare exotic treasures perfect for urban warriors and rugged individualists. They're skillfully made by folks passionate about their craft.
