An age-old tradition from mezcaleros, Jamón Ibérico is typically produced in small batches for personal consumption as a ceremonial and festive mezcal, taking place at year-end. First, the agave is crushed, baked in earthen-oven pits, fermented and then distilled in a copper pot still. Organic cooked and seasoned pork shoulder with locally sourced aromatic herbs, spices, and seasonal fruits are added into the second and final distillation.
The Jamón Ibérico expresses a citrus-forward nose of lime and grapefruit with a tropical aroma of banana. A viscous mouthfeel coats the palate with savory flavors, complemented by a slight floral note of hibiscus flower.
