Santo Puro Mezqulia | Sammy Hagar Mezqulia
Our mezquila’s smooth agave aroma mixes with an earthy, light smokiness with a hint of herbs. The initial bite is mellow and fades gently while the full taste and finish elicits the intricate agave flavor and herbal complexity layered with gentle smoke, slight floral fruitiness and low saltiness.
When Sammy Hagar gets together with friends in Cabo San Lucas you never know what’s coming next. So begins the history behind Santo’s Tequila Blanco and Mezquila – both borne out of good friends, great food, a lot of tequila and the search for a taste revelation: “a higher spirit.”
Together, rocker Sammy Hagar and chef Guy Fieri found their virtuoso with Juan Eduardo Nuñez, the third-generation master distiller from the famed distillery El Viejito, founded in 1937, in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico.
Sammy’s history of making world-renowned tequila, Guy’s world-famous taste buds, and Juan Eduardo’s award-winning craftsmanship, bring to life the portfolio of Santo spirits; a sinfully smooth old world style tequila blanco, and the world’s first mezquila.
