Tasting Notes

Reposado Agave - El Presidente

Loved by presidents, leaders, and captains of industry, and now sitting as the pinnacle in the Lost Mexican range. The Reposado is a fitting epitaph to the life’s work of one of the early Cornish miners to venture to Mexico.

By 1870, Stanley Kiernan, the son of a Penzance distiller, was the last of a ragtag bunch of miners who had set sail from Cornwall and made their home in Central Mexico. He had spent decades playing with local flavours to create the world’s first range of Cornish-made Mezcal.

Now an old man and as much a Mexican as he ever was a Cornishman, he would take a bottle of his best Reposado up to the Panteón Inglés, where his compatriots lay.

With a wry smile on his weathered face as the memories of their exploits stirred in his mind, he would sit among their tombstones, all facing towards Kernow, and raise a glass to his old friends and their transatlantic adventures.

Café Agave - Mezcal Barrel Coffee Kick

By 1846, Cornish miners had been working in the silver mines of Mexico for twenty years. Knit-frocks and flat caps had been replaced with ponchos and sombreros, whilst sea shanties rang out from the tavernas each evening.

Penzance-born distiller Stanley Kiernan was now famous for his succulent alchemy. His most celebrated concoction, locally known as El Café Del Monte, used agave with vanilla and coffee beans.

Each day, a pasty now spiced with chilli and a ration of El Café was sent down the mineshaft to be met with cries of ¡Yeghes Da Amigos!

Cafe Agave

The Best Shot in Cornwall - Blanco Agave

In early 1825, Stanley Kiernan, the son of a Penzance distiller, set sail from Falmouth with around 60 of his fellow Cornishmen and 1500 tons of mining machinery. They arrived in Mineral del Monte, Mexico, in May 1826, where they immediately set to work resurrecting the region’s derelict silver mines.

Before too long, the mines were up and running, the pasty was the new staple in town, and Stanley fashions a basic still out of damaged mining equipment. With the help of the locals and their succulent botanicals, he starts to experiment, and on that windswept hill in central Mexico, the world’s first Cornish-made mezcal is born – a recipe lost in time until now…
