Bozal Brings Our Marigold Flower Distilled Mezcal For Dia de Los Muertos


Bozal, which takes its name from the word for "untamed", is up and ready for this year's Dia de Los Muertos, also known as the Day of the Dead, which is a cherished celebration that takes place at the start of November each year.

The distiller has in store a marigold flower distilled expression that takes inspiration from the flower itself which is considered symbolic of the revered dead in Mexico.


“We have always dreamed of crafting an ancestral mezcal that would honor the traditions of Día de los Muertos,... Traveling the backroads of Mexico and meeting the people and history behind our sourcing remains a critical factor in the success of our agave portfolio.

Our Cempasúchil pays homage to those long-term relationships and the culture that defines Bozal, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to introduce this unique expression to the U.S. market.”

August Sebastiani, Bozal Founder


The Cempasúchil expression contains "fresh notes of green pepper, orange zest, nutmeg and anise, imbued with flavors of mandarin peel dropped into the still during traditional clay pot distillation" and serves as an autumnal toast to the Dia de Los Muertos celebrations.

It is bottled at 47% ABV and retails for US$129.
