Salinas is the western Mezcal producer town of the State of San Luis. Don Jose Acosta learned the trade from his father, he harvests the agaves from the plateau wherethe real desert and the mountains meet. Since the end of the 19th century the mezcal is produced in haciendas, true cathedrals with their own specific ritu-als. Even today he keeps the steps of the process for himself. The result is superb. You will find citric and creamy notes from this mezcal, the refinement of the hacienda process delivers sharp notes.
