Origen Riaz Chacaleno Mezcal

Origen Riaz Chacaleno Mezcal

Origen Raíz represents a partnership between two distinct sets of Mexican roots: the Saravia family of Durango, who have a long history of working to improve the local economy through business, and the Cortés family of Oaxaca, who contribute six generations of knowledge to the world of mezcal production. The families were brought together by their sons, Asis Cortés and Bildo Saravia, through cultural passion and respect for each other’s heritage.

AROMA: Bursting with tropical fruit on the nose.
TASTE: Mango and white flowers, roast banana on the palate, some white pepper, super creamy texture. Super silky.
ENJOY: Sipping mezcal is enjoyed slowly and with friends. Paired with smoked meats or bbq chicken.
