All the whiskies are distilled using hand pound copper stills which are traditionally used for the Mezcal industry. They are all pot stills and aged in french oak barrels. It is single barrel bottling for maximum appreciation of all the wonderful and magical nuances that happen in the different barrels.
What is so interesting about Sierra Norte as a brand is their dedication to the local community. The growers are single village small family farmers. They are subsistence level farmers. They are preserving the tradition and the culture of the criollo corn in Oaxaca that has been passed down from generation to generation for thousands of years.
This is sustainable agriculture and it makes a big difference on the local level. AND it makes a good whisky, which one can sip knowing that much care and work has been invested in this particular whiskey.
