From it’s origins in the beautiful Mexican state of Oaxaca, to the experience of tasting it’s unforgettable flavor, Mezcal San Cosme is a unique spirit, with a taste and craftsmanship that take us back to Mexico’s pre-colonial tradition. Mezcal San Cosme borrows it’s name from Saint Cosmas who, alongside his twin brother Damian, is worshiped by some as the Patron Saint of Doctors. Together, the brothers defied death in several occasions, and miracles are attributed to them even after their passing, appearing in people´s dreams and healing those who implore them. A product of a fascinating history of religion, politics, astronomy and philosophy, mezcal is a miraculous beverage that reflects the richness of a culture with mythical origins. Mezcal San Cosme is the taste of our ancestors; its delicate taste should be enjoyed slowly, by sipping each drink while discovering the complex aromas, smooth textures and smoky softness of this historical Mexican beverage.
Bright, crystalline in colour. The bouquet shows a fresh scent of cooked agave, with a strong hint of alcohol and an underlying scent of raw agave. Some hints of caramel, wood and earth. San Cosme feels like it gently coats the mouth, and has a flavor of smoky agave mixed with leather. The finish is warm, yet pleasant.
