Convite Mezcal is produced in Mexico, specifically in the state of Oaxaca, known for its rich mezcal-making tradition and is one of the primary regions where high-quality mezcal is produced.
Mezcal is made from the heart of the agave plant known as the “piña.” The piñas are harvested and roasted in underground pits filled with hot rocks and covered with earth, which gives mezcal its distinct smoky flavor. After roasting, the piñas are crushed, fermented, and distilled to produce mezcal.
Convite Mezcal is known for its commitment to traditional and sustainable production methods. They often emphasize their dedication to respecting the environment and supporting local communities involved in production.
Mezcal can be made from various agave species, and Convite may produce different mezcal expressions using specific agave types. Some popular agave varieties used in mezcal production include Espadín, Tobalá, and Tepextate.
Convite Mezcal has been noted for its unique bottle design and label art, often showcasing Oaxacan culture and heritage elements. They support local communities and small-scale producers in Oaxaca, providing them access to international markets and helping preserve traditional mezcal-making techniques.
