Xicaru Silver 102° Mezcal

— Respect for tradition —
xicaru silver 102 bottle

Inspiration
With Xicaru Silver 102° Fernando Santibañez honors the tradition of master mezcaleros, who prize the concentrated characteristics of high-proof mezcals. Fernando selects a smaller cut from the heart of the distillate, giving Xicaru Silver 102° a bolder, more robust flavor.

Production
Xicaru Silver 102° differs from Xicaru Silver in the way it is distilled. A narrower cut is taken from the heart, where the alcohol, smoke and agave are more concentrated. Xicaru Silver and Xicaru Silver 102° both utilize traditional mezcal production methods passed down from generation to generation.

Tasting Notes
The crisp, high proof of Xicaru Silver 102° asserts itself in all aspects, dominating on the nose and palate before gradually softening to the rich, smoky and vegetal notes of traditionally-produced, artisanal mezcal. The finish is warm and lasting.
