Drink of the Week: Mezcales de Leyenda San Luis Potosi

dotw-leyenda mezcal-san luis potosi

Most mezcal releases in America right now come primarily from the state of Oaxaca, but thanks to increased attention on the category, we’re starting to see releases from other parts of Mexico too—like the new San Luis Potosi release from Mezcales de Leyenda. With heaps of salty minerality, high notes of tropical pineapple and an undercurrent of savory green peppercorn, this is a perfect spirit for sipping solo. $85, oldtowntequila.com
