JIMA OR HARVEST
Seven years of maturity have to happen for our raw material, which is blue
agave is top condition to be harvested, then only the best one get selected
to be part of El Zacatecano mezcal .
Once the agave is selected and the “pineapples” are ready, they get shipped
out from the field to the manufacturing plant or factory where they get
process and then under a tight quality control process agave pineapples are
cut in to pieces and carried out to the ovens where they cook 8hrs and let
stand for 12hrs.
GRINDING AND FERMENTATION
agave is downloaded to the mills. In this process the syrup or honey from
the agave gets extracted which thereafter are pumped to large stainless
steel vats where fermentation takes place through all-natural process that
takes about 72hrs.
