Special edition MEXICAT Mezcal Añejo Huichol is masterpiece which combines our oldest reserves, barrels aged 60 and 28 months both in American oak barrels.
A tribute to the Wixárikas better known as Huicholes, pre-Hispanic tribe mainly located in the states of Nayarit, Jalisco and parts of Durango and Zacatecas.They are known worldwide for their artistic and colorful decorations exhibited in their crafts and clothing. This culture has its own traditions which includes spiritual ceremonies where they collect and benefit from the psychoactive use of Peyote cactus.
These artists have a great ability to create colorful designs and mixing symbols related to Mother Nature such as deers, flowers, plants, nopales, snakes, fire, snakes, eagle, jaguar among others. This striking quality is due to the fact that, according to their cosmovision the gods speak to men through colors.
The artistic decorative process is 100% manual and individual taking approximately 8 hours to make the decoration by embedding hundreds of "chaquiras"
(colored beads) on each bottle
making their design unique, exclusive and unrepeatable.
