Global spirits company Casa Lumbre debuted its Contraluz Cristalino Mezcal in the United States. Made from cultivated Espadín agave, Contraluz Cristalino Mezcal is matured for approximately six months in charred American oak barrels sourced from renowned U.S. whiskey producers, the company says. The unique filtration process strikes a balance between the subtle notes of vanilla, cedar, honey and dried fruit acquired during the maturation process, and the cooked agave that delivers a smooth finish and a touch of light smoke, it adds. This expansion into the U.S. market in 2022, and into global markets in 2023 and beyond, further underscores the company’s dedication to artisanal values and innovation in agave spirits on a global scale, it says. Contraluz Cristalino Mezcal currently is available in Mexico, and now for sale at the suggested retail price of $59.99 a bottle in the United States, including California, Texas, Florida, New York, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada and Illinois. Expansion across the U.S. and distribution internationally will continue into 2023.
