Established in 2010, Espíritu Corsa took over a Palenque that has been operating for three generations with the aim of producing the best mezcal in Mexico. Espíritu Corsa produces 3 brands of high quality traditional handmade Mezcal:
- Mezcal Espíritu Lauro
- Mezcal Santa Pedrera
- Mezcal Buen Bicho
The production process takes place entirely in their palenque, located in San Agustin Amatengo, in the heart of Oaxaca. Traditional and handmade techniques are used, as well as all natural ingredients with a guarantee of no pesticides or additives. The company is convinced of the nobility, complexity and superiority of mezcal with respect to the other spirits in Mexico.
Espiritu Lauro Silvestres
Sustainability is key to Espiritu Corsa. In preserving the land, the minerals, and the Mezcal tradition for generations to come, the Silvestres line is available in limited quantities, as the earth can provide.
A concerted effort is given to have grace on mother earth. With true heart and passion, Espiritu Lauro Silvestres presents pure wild agave foraged in Ejutla, Oaxaca.
Espiritu Lauro Silvestres varies on alcohol percentage and availability.
