Sombra, the Spanish word for "shadow" is an extraordinary spirit produced in the small Mexican village of San Luis Del Rio. Wild Espadin Agave is hand-harvested and slowly roasted over a specially-crafted rock pit in order to absorb the rich flavors of earth and wood smoke. The agave is then crushed, fermented and distilled using traditional production methods. The bottle is composed entirely out of recycled glass collected from the surrounding area. Every piece is smashed into smaller pieces, heated, and poured into the bottle mold. Every bottle is a little different, each exhibiting its own unique details and qualities. To make Sombra even more interesting, is the striking pattern on the inner label. For the label, a collaboration of artists, WKRP Inc, created a bizarre collage of random body parts from Mexican pornographic comic books. However, the government required that the images be censored, and today only black and white silhouettes remain.....sorry folks.

On both the nose and palate, Sombra displays bright notes of citrus fruit and exotic spice, tinged with an earthy smokiness. Smooth and warming, with a clean, fruit-driven finish, this exceptional mezcal adds a unique element to a variety of cocktails. Try it neat for a completely different experience.

Smoky, brassy, and bold February 24, 2011
Reviewer: Guy DeLouche from Lafayette, CO United States  
Sombra is everything a good joven mezcal should be - lots of woodsmoke, followed by some earthy agave and a fiery, warming finish. The bottle itself is impressive - thick, heavy glass and some polished artwork. My complaint is the price - you pay dearly for the fancy art and shipping that heavy bottle as well as what's in it. This is a great mezcal, but for a better value, try organic Benesin or its sister product San Juan Del Rio.
