Fire, Rock, Earth. That's all it takes. Sombra Mezcal is an artisanal spirit that respects the traditions of Oaxaca, while elevating production methods to include sustainable and responsible practices for the good of the local environment and local economy.

Sombra Mezcal is made from Espadín agave, hand-harvested on the steep slopes of the Oaxacan Sierra. The agave hearts are buried in an earthen pit where they slowly roast over hot rocks. The agave are then crushed by a mechanical limestone tahona, fermented with only native yeast, and expertly distilled. The byproducts of the distillation are then upcycled into adobe bricks to rebuild earthquake damaged homes.

One must do good while trying to do well. If we are to honor our communities as well as the land, we must pave the way for healthy, responsible growth by fostering practices that take care of Oaxaca, a place and a people that many of us have come to deeply love. Sombra Mezcal is a proud member of 1% For The Planet, donating at least 1% of sales to certified environmental charities and local educational initiatives in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Traditionally, spent agave fibers, left over after fermentation and distillation, are dumped into local waterways, along with the acidic liquid byproduct, which is approximately 10 times the volume of liquor produced.

To break that cycle and move toward zero waste, Sombra developed a technique to combine the two forms of waste to create adobe bricks. The bricks are being used to build houses in villages that have been impacted by recent earthquakes.
