Mezcal Legendario Domingo was founded in 2012 by Julian Saenger. Born and raised in Mexico, Julian has always had tremendous love and respect for the art of mezcal production, often finding ways to delve into production, marketing, brand launches and general support of the category throughout Mexico. When he finally found the opportunity to create a brand of his own through partnership with the Velasco family, he chose to centre the brand design around a recurring feeling he experienced through his journey in mezcal: celebration.

Through its various labels, designed in Papel Picado, Legendario Domingo highlights different mezcal producing regions of Mexico, demonstrating exemplary distillation tradition from each region and emphasizing the differences in terroir. The mezcals Legendario Domingo produces are Palenque and regional designates (similar to vineyard designates in wine), purposefully emphasizing each region by accenting the terroir and capturing the agave varietal character, aromas, flavours and mouthfeel that wild fermentation and artisanal production afford.

This Mezcal is made from 100% Cultivated Maguey Espadín (Agave Angustifolia) harvested at 8-9 years old from San Luis del Rio, in the Oaxaca region by Maestro Mezcalero Familia Colon. The piña is cooked for 4-5 days in underground conical ovens ignited with Tepehuaje (Lead Tree) and sabino wood, both woods endemic to this region. Not a single tree is cut down, as all wood is gathered from fallen, dead trees. The roasted piña are then crushed by a Tahona mill, Chilean stone pulled by horse, method to crush the agave after cooking. Fermentation takes place in open underground wooden vats with fresh spring water for 10 days. No yeast is added, and instead indigenous yeast from the air ferments the agave juice. The mezcal is then double-distilled in a 300 litre Arabic Alembic pot still. The mezcal is then rested 30-45 days prior to being bottled. Each bottle is then filled, labelled and boxed by hand, completing the artisanal process from field to bottle. This Espadin has fresh citrus flavours with a hint of minerality, followed by a mild taste of smokiness and ripe Oaxacan fruits.
