La Luna Mezcal de Michoacan originates from one of the most abundant states in Mexico. From the sandy coast to the peaks of las sierras, Michoacan is filled with tradition, culture, and history. Part of that story continues on the lush landscapes surrounding La Luna in our traditional vinata.
Produced in the verdant and mountainous regions of Michoacan, La Luna Mezcal highlights the craftsmanship of generations of family practices producing artisanal and ancestral mezcal.
At elevations of over 2000 meters, the wild and semi-cultivated agaves are harvested under the moon after reaching full maturity. Shortly thereafter, the pinas are fire-roasted in the stone-lined earth pit using estate-sourced white oak. The cooked pinas are macerated, then fermented in open-air wooden vats before being double-distilled in either a copper cazo-and-pinewood still or, ancestrally, in a clay pot still.
