Production Process

400 Conejos is finely crafted from 100% espadín agave in Oaxaca, Mexico using traditional methods.  Only the best espadín agaves are hand-selected after being meticulously cultivated.

After selection, the agaves are harvested using “jima” and taken to the “palenque” where they are cooked in traditional cone-shaped wood ovens.  The wood is lit and volcanic rocks are placed on top of it in a pyramid shape.  Finally, the agave “piña”-filled oven is covered with cloth and earth and cooked for 3 to 5 days.

Once cooked, the piñas are milled using a stone pulled by a horse.  They are then kept in a wooden tub where they begin their fermentation process.

400 Conejos mezcal is double-distilled in copper pot stills and then bottled to enjoy at 80 proof.
