WE ARE PROUD OF OUR PROCESS
We only harvest agaves that reach the mature level after 5 to 9 years (depending on the agave).
Our hydrolysis process allows us to take the unpleasant smoky note out of the experience of tasting mezcal, allowing each plant to express itself in every sip.
NAYAA always gives the agave 24 hours of cooking plus another 12 hours having it resting in the oven, allowing the flavor of every agave to concentrate and have better palate notes. Our process is free of chemicals, anti-foaming or any designed yeast, as we only use local and natural yeast.
The fermentation process goes from 2 to 12 days according to weather conditions, we only do it with agave juice, allowing the final product to be bitter free and to have balance, following the Mezcal norm we only use 100% agave sugar.
Why is our mezcal unique and why our mezcal doesn’t have the smoky note?
Because we use water steam that allows us to take away the smoky note that is usually present in other mezcal brands, this way we honor the real agave plant flavor.
