Sombra Mezcal is an award-winning, handcrafted spirit distilled from organic agave in the mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico.
Our new distillery opened in 2017 with sustainable upgrades throughout. Sombra uses certified firewood for roasting the agave, and solar power for turning the millstone. We collect rain from the distillery roof, ferment with native yeast, and bottle our product in recycled glass. Our stills are insulated for energy efficiency and heated with a precise gas flame. We also strive to be mindful with our waste. Sombra composts leftover agave to reduce its acidity, and we are experimenting with upcycling the distillation byproducts into adobe bricks and biofuel.
Sombra Mezcal is a proud member of 1% for the Planet, donating a portion of sales each year to certified environmental charities and local education initiatives. We honor the deep traditions of mezcal through innovation and sustainability, and we embrace the Oaxacan ideals of te divierte (have fun), sigue aprendiendo (keep learning), and ama la terra (love the Earth). Our mezcal is a celebration of the holistic, sustainable lifestyle the world needs right now. Salud!
