The latest import from Mexico has hit the soil in the UK – Ojo de Tigre (Tiger’s Eye) is an exceptional new mezcal from the master distillers at Case Lumbre. This smooth but complex spirit is handcrafted and artisanal with the quality and provenance you would expect from Case Lumbre, who also produce Montelobos Mezcal, Ancho Reyes, Abasolo Whisky and Nixta Corn Liqueur.

Ojo de Tigre is made with two varieties of cultivated agaves both 100% sustainably grown from two key agave regions of Mexico. ‘Espadín’ is grown in Oaxaca, the heart of Mexico’s mezcal region and ‘Tobalá’ from the neighbouring state of Puebla.

Acclaimed Mexican film star Luis Gerardo Méndez, is co-founder of Ojo de Tigre. Méndez stars in Netflix’s Spanish-language comedy series, Club de Cuervos and also appeared alongside Jennifer Anniston in Murder Mystery as well as featuring in the 2019 remake of Charlie’s Angels. He is a massive advocate of mezcal and has made it his mission to introduce the historic spirit to a new generation of drinkers.

Ojo de Tigre comes in a unique bottle inspired by historic amulet flasks.

Roberto Hidalgo Chief Marketing Officer & Partner at Casa Lumbre said:

“Ojo de Tigre is a vibrant, sophisticated and joyful mezcal, we can’t wait to introduce our latest offering to the UK market. We have created a drink that doesn’t overwhelm; it is subtle, warming and perfect to be served alone or in a cocktail.”

Nick Gillett, MD at Mangrove UK said:

“As the mezcal market continues to grow it’s a great honour to welcome Ojo de Tigre to the UK, I am confident that British consumers will appreciate it. It’s a really accessible drink, for those who are new to the world of mezcal and tequila; I’d recommend you start your journey here.”

Premium drinks distributer Mangrove UK will be distributing Ojo de Tigre and it’s available now.

The taste is subtle and moreish with dried fruits, citrus, smoked cocoa, hints of cucumber and cooked agave.
