Production Process

Jima of the agave

After the agave is harvested, the spines of the plant are cut off, cleaning the piñas (heart of the agave).

Cooking

The piñas are cooked in rock ovens (large, 8—12 ft diameter / 6 ft deep, rock-lined cronical pits in the ground).

Grinding

Then the piñas are mashed with a large stone wheel called tahona attached to a post that is pulled around by horse, donkey or mule.

Fermentation

Once mashed completely the product is placed in large wooden vats to be fermented for two days.

Distillation

The distillation is in cooper pot still, Mezcal San Cosme has double distillation, taking out the heads and tails.
