Derrumbes is approaching mezcal with terroir as a guiding principle. Each bottling focuses on one region specifically, encompassing the varieties of agave and varied production styles of that place. While we cannot come close to saying that these bottlings are definitive of each state they represent, they are a great snapshot of mezcal’s eccentricity based on location. The team behind this brand is Venenosa’s Esteban Garibi and Sergio Mendoza Garcia of Don Fulano, two well-established names in the artisanal spirits world of Mexico. The bottling from Tamaulipas is very serious mezcal. Three varieties of agaves - funkiana, univittata, and americana - are pit-roasted with black oak and ground with a mechanical mill before wild fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The mezcal is distilled twice up to 48.1% abv resulting in some heady funk, cracked pepper, and bubble gum notes.
