High up in the Zacatecan Bajio, Mexico’s most fertile plateau, there exists a centuries old tradition of the “luminar”
A wisdom keeper for the area’s most ancient agaves
Typically bent over a blazing campfire, he shares this wisdom with others in search of insights of exceptional and beneficial qualities. During these rituals the “Luminar” often uses mezcal made from these remote agaves to evoke states of inner bliss and illumination.
It is from this tradition comes Luminar Mezcal. Using select agaves grown in the Bajio and on the mountain tops of Zacatecas, this mezcal offers you a chance to ingest the wisdom tradition of Agave. 254 farming families in Zacatecas have nurtured their agaves for years bring you the smooth and satisfying notes of Luminar. Distilled on site, Luminar is a rare cultural taste treasure.
