Xicaru Silver 102 Mezcal
About Xicaru Silver 102 Mezcal
Xicaru – the Zapotec word for beautiful – reflects the desire to share a traditionally produced mezcal that is truly beautiful, approachable and distinct. Small batches of Xicaru Mezcal are made using time-honored methods in Matatlán, Oaxaca. Xicaru Silver 102° honors the tradition of master mezcaleros, who prize the concentrated characteristics of high-proof mezcals. Selecting a smaller cut from the heart of the distillate gives Xicaru Silver 102° a bolder, more robust flavor.
