CRIOLLO DE OAXACA: Maria
Criollo de Oaxaca Maria is the first offering by Patrimonio de Torres. It is an artisanal mezcal liqueur that is crafted by close-knit communities in central Mexico. A collaboration from founder Stephen Torres and star bartender Julia Momose, it’s a versatile spirit that boasts a complex blend of cacao and spices, inspired by Stephen’s grandmother’s mole negro recipe. With espadin agave as its base, the result is a proprietary mix that has the characteristic smokiness of mezcal, with chocolaty, nutty notes that work well in a number of presentations. The Patrimonio de Torres team is committed to making the finest mezcal, using high-quality, natural, and regional ingredients. Agave industry veteran Isabella Mendoza and Oaxacan mezcaleros also bring their expertise in crafting a rich mezcal with robust flavor and a refined sensibility.
