A glass designed to enjoy mezcal through the senses.
Mezcal is a spirit made from agave and just as there are many species of agave, there are many types of mezcal: Espadín, Tobalá, Tepeztate. A good mezcal has a very complex aroma and taste, however there are no special glasses to truly appreciate it. People use classic glasses or, more traditionally, a jicara from the tecomate plant. But the shape of these vessels does not enhance its characteristics.
Mezcalero is a tasting glass designed to deliver a better way to appreciate mezcal by enhancing the senses. It has a bulbous shape that helps concentrate both the aroma and flavor in order to find a real appreciation of the nuances of mezcal.
The Mezcalero glass was designed by delaO design studio and made entirely by hand by a family-run glass workshop in México City.
