Mezcalero Special Bottling No. 5 is an agave-based spirit distilled in Durango by Don Rubén Solis Lozano. Grown in thin rocky terrain, this wild cenizo (Agave durangensis) was harvested and mesquite-roasted in an underground stone oven, before being crushed by hand and fermented in a wood-covered underground pit using natural yeasts. The spirit was then double-distilled in a 300-liter copper potstill, topped with a wooden cap and dual condensers. Finally, this mezcal was bottled in August of 2019.
