Mezcal IBA Mezcal 55
It's a young mezcal 100% made or espadin agave, characterized of its moist and smokey accents. Smoother spirit and asceticds, IBA 55 is the first mezcal with a 55% alcoholic content in the market, specially made for exigent palates. Mezcal IBÁ production follows the traditional process of mezcal manufacturing, handcrafted by our Mezcal Master: IBÁ selects the best Agaves (also known as Magueys). This selection is made by the Mezcal Master reviewing and filtering one by one carefully, taken care of shape, colour and size. The agaves should be mature enough to produce a real good final Mezcal. If they are not mature, it is no possible to get the right taste, as the agave sugars are mostly related to the land. To really achieve an unique flavour and taste, Mezcal IBÁ just use espadín agaves. Once agave selection is made, the leaves are trimmed and Agave hearts (also knowns as "piñas") are saved. Based on the size, agave hearts are divided in pieces for their correct cooking. There is a special method to divide agave hearts used by Mezcal Master to get the perfect results and cleanness. The wood for the cooking is also carefully selected. It must be solid and aromatic enough. The rustic outdoor oven stands in a base made of river rocks. When the oven has the right temperature (between 1472 - 1832 F°) , the "agave hearts", already selected for IBA mezcals, are introduced in the rustic oven. The cooking time use to be about 72 horas, to achieve the right taste and quality. The baked "piñas" are crushed to extract the sugars that distinguish IBA mezcals. The obtained paste are set inside wood tubs for it's fermentation. It takes between 7 and 10 days. Fermentation time depends on climate, season and agave honeys quantity. Experts supervise the fermentation time to secure the required characteristics of the process which confers de quality and identity of IBA mezcals. When fermentation is finished, the base is moved to alembics (made of copper), heated with fire, getting what they called "puntas", "cuerpo" and "colas" (1). Alembics are handcrafted in Oaxaca. The reason to be made of cooper is to avoid any contamination and to preserve the taste. Alambice are heated with the best woods. To assure the highest quality Mezcal IBÁ products pass two destillation. Afterwards, the process of refinement and rectification starts using the "puntas" and "cuerpo" already obtained. The result is an extra pure distillate, flawless and more refined. The combination of this distillates are made by de Mezcal master which brings his experience to achieve the alcoholic volume that characterizes IBA mezcals. Finally, the destilled product is labeled and bottled. Depends on the alcoholic degree, the final products are labeled as Mezcal IBÁ 40, Mezcal IBÁ 40 Silacayoapam y Mezcal IBÁ 55.
