Origen Raíz Mezcal Madrecuishe Silvestre "Edición 2"
Rancho El Ojo is a pristine ranch in Durango and the birthplace of Origen Raíz. The ranch lies just outside the Sierra de Organos National Park at an elevation of approximately 6,350 feet. It is owned by the Saravia family, who act as stewards of the land to conserve the balance and rejuvenate the health of the grassland ecosystem. With an abundance of agave and dasylirion, this certified wildlife preserve also presented a wonderful opportunity to make sustainable mezcals and sotols.
Don Valentín Cortés, with his knowledge of traditional mezcal from Oaxaca, joined the Saravia family to build Viñata El Ojo. The two families now produce mezcal and sotol with much love and respect for their culture and heritage. Origen Raíz is the Cortés family’s first mezcal produced outside their home state of Oaxaca. You might be familiar with their other mezcals: El Jolgorio, Nuestra Soledad, and Agave de Cortés.
Origen Raiz Madrecuishe is produced in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca by maestro mezcalero Valentin Cortes. The Agave karwinskii are cooked in an underground pit oven, crushed by tahona, fermented in open air wooden tanks, and double distilled in copper stills.
