A clean spirit with subtle smokiness.” GEM&BOLT is a clean spirit with a smooth profile and subtle botanical notes resulting in the perfect mezcal. GEM&BOLT is a small batch joven mezcal made with perfectly ripened, late harvest, 100% espadin agave from the central valleys of Oaxaca, Mexico. GEM&BOLT is deeply informed by hundreds of years of tradition, using no artificial yeasts, additives or chemicals. The pĨna is slowly wood-roasted in conic earthen pits and mashed with traditional tahona stone. It then goes through a natural fermentation in oak vats. The first distillation is in small copper stills and then rested (not aged) in oak barrels for 3-6 months. During the second distillation, using our proprietary stainless-steel copper alloy still, the damiana herb is introduced as the agave spirit’s vapors pass through the botanical basket releasing the damiana’s essential oils. This process highlights herbal notes of chamomile, balanced by a well-rounded roasted agave profile distinct to artisanal mezcals from San Dionisio Ocotepec. Damiana is a traditional Mexican herb long-revered by the Maya and Aztec for its myriad of mood-elevating properties. This beloved heart-opening herb perfectly complements GEM&BOLT resulting in a unique composition of biosphere and natural elements promising only the highest quality mezcal.
