Contraluz Mezcal Takes Cristalino To Japanese Sakura Casks With 11:11 Reposado


Contraluz Mezcal, known for popularising the Cristalino style, is once again pioneering something incredibly unique - the use of Japanese Sakura casks.

Contraluz 11:11 Reposado has aged its mezcal for 11 months and 11 days in American oak bourbon barrels and cherry wood Sakura casks.


This is said to create a "refined smokiness, decadent cherry blossom notes, and subtle hints of wood."

Only 270 bottles of new expression will be released at 40% ABV.
