Sierra Norte Ancestral Black Corn

Sierra Norte Ancestral Black Corn

Celebrating 20 years of distilling success, Douglas French, Master Distiller of Scorpion Mezcal SA de CV and importers, Caballeros Inc., announce the release of Sierra Norte™ Native Corn Whiskies from Oaxaca, Mexico.
The Sierra Norte Mountains of Oaxaca Mexico, with their profuse flora, abundant wildlife, and crystal clear, flowing waters, support some of the world’s most treasured biodiversity. More than any other crop, corn embodies the life giving relationship between these ancient mountains and their inhabitants.

Descendants of the regions first farmers continue to grow over 35 native varieties of corn, carefully saving and replanting the best seeds from each harvest, as they and their ancestors have done for over 7000 years.
Sierra Norte™ Native Corn Whiskies started with Master Distiller Douglas French’s passion to use different varieties of this ancient, flavorful Oaxacan corn to make a series of unique, outstanding whiskies. Each variety is distilled separately and matured in French Oak casks, to showcase its individual character and nuance.

A deeper corn note than White, the Oaxacan black corn retains a firm nugget of sweetness, aromas of banana skins and dusty earth. To sip, it’s creamy, cool, and refreshing, with light mandarin flavors, gingerbread, corn fritters, vanilla, and peppery heat from the French oak cask. The finish has gentle warmth, with root ginger and kernels of roasted corn. Distinctive and highly promising.
