Mezcal maker Dangerous Don has released a new flavour of the Mexican spirit that incorporates one of the country’s other big exports – coffee.
Available to consumers in the UK, the new Mezcal Destilado con Café uses only traditional, artisanal processes and craftsmanship to deliver ‘a rich and intensely smooth coffee flavour’ while still retaining the sweet and smokey aromas traditionally associated with mezcal.
The drink is a traditional distilled alcoholic beverage made from the agave plant.
Dangerous Don is produced in the so-called ‘home of Mezcal’ – Santiago Matatlan in southern Oaxaca state.
Following on from their introduction of Estancia Raicilla and Cazcabel Reposado last year, Proof Drinks have taken on the distribution rights for Dangerous Don in the UK.
A spokesperson for Proof Drinks said: “The agave category has become more and more popular over the last few years, which has allowed for relatively unknown spirits like mezcal to appear on bars across the UK, and with customers delving deeper into the category it was only natural for the category to expand.”
