Rooster Rojo Mezcal 70cl

Default Title InStock

Rooster Rojo Mezcal is handcrafted by Lopes Sosa Palenque, a small craft distillery in San Juan del Rio, Oaxaca, Mexico.

Each bottle is signed by Maestro Mezcalero (the master mezcal maker) Rodolfo Lopez Juan. This confirms that he has been following the correct production processes and signifies his approval that this liquid is perfect for mezcal aficionados around the world.

The bottle is dark, similar to traditional clay bottles. The purpose of this is to prevent the liquid from being affected by direct sunlight and to ensure it is not visible to the ‘bad eye’ before consumption. This is a traditional Oaxacan belief.


ABV 43%

Mezcal v Tequila

Mezcal is pure traditional drink from rural Mexico. The purest you can get in terms of authenticity and historical production traditions, passed on from generation to generation. It has the closest connection with people, who have been hand-making it for years, according to their own traditions and know-how. It is the purest expression of the drink, revealing the core, the soul of Mexico.

Mezcal is produced in a different location than tequila. Whilst it too is made from agave, here the similarity with tequila ends, as agaves for mezcal production are entirely different than the ones used in tequila production. For tequila, you can only use blue Weber agave, but for mezcal, the choice is huge.

Rooster Rojo Mezcal is produced from Espadin agaves, also known as maguey angustifolia. Rooster Rojo Tequila is produced in Ialisco state, in the town of Tequila in Mexico, supervised by our skilled production team. In recognition of the quality of these fine liquids, 25 international awards have been received in a very short time. We are lucky that we can use this know-how and transfer our expertise of liquid development into another category—namely, mezcal.
