At the Real de Minas Distillery in Santa Catarina Minas, we are in our eleventh generation of crafting iconic mezcal. For Mina Real Mezcal, we use an agave roasting technique that saves 25,000 pounds of wood per roast (that’s equal to one large tree!), using Oaxaca’s most ecological roasting oven.
Our production highlights aromatic agave cooked without charring and fermented with wild yeasts, before double-distillation in pot stills.

Bright & Elegant Flavor
Mina Real Mezcal is made from 100% Espadín agave and contains no additives.
