ZACATECAS, Mexico, June 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Kimo Sabe, the fastest growing Mezcal brand in the United States, announced today it is launching a rare, limited release luxury line of Mezcal titled Colección de las Maravillas, with the first edition of the collection, Cinco de Noviembre, set to debut in July at Tails of the Cocktail. Cinco de Noviembre is a blend of the rarest of all agaves, sonicated, then rested in glass for 26 months. The limited edition release of 700 bottles will be offered in select cities across the U.S. and internationally, aptly priced at $511.
Crafted by Kimo Sabe's Co-Founder Ashley Kvamme and COO of Mexican Operations, Diana Rivas, Cinco de Noviembre even before launch was awarded the Agave Spirits Category's highest honor Best In Class in 2017 by the American Distilling Institute, competing against all other mezcals and tequilas.
Three and a half years in the making, Cinco de Noviembre pays homage to the rarest of agaves across the mezcal regions of Mexico. The process began with a year-long search to find the six rare varieties needed that could be harvested sustainably. The exacting process of combining flavors began with blending single and double distillations and then marrying them in a third distillation to achieve the utmost flavor accord. Finally, in a step unique to Kimo Sabe, the final distillation was harmonized by Kimo Sabe's proprietary sound wave technology and then left to rest slowly in glass for over two years. The result is exotic tropical notes in perfect harmony with aromas of cacao and spice complemented by notes of vanilla, cinnamon, toasted almond and sweet cooked agave.
Maravilla, which is Spanish for "Wonder" serves as the inspiration for the creation, with the name Cinco de Noviembre paying homage to Kvamme and Rivas mutual birth date. Colección de las Maravillas - inspired by co-founder Kvamme's private collection of unique mezcal expressions - will showcase a new volume each year around the holidays.
"Cinco de Noviembre was made by Ashley and me to pay homage to the incredible heights a varietal agave spirit can achieve. We are honored to share the first volume of Colección de las Maravillas with the world," said Diana Rivas.
These limited editions, rare releases will continue to highlight Kvamme's passion and innovative drive to push the boundaries for sophisticated and intriguing mezcal tastes.
"At Kimo Sabe, we are proud to make mezcals with a complexity that is unmatched. We are dedicated to looking for groundbreaking techniques to create authentic yet unexpected mezcals that celebrate the spirit in a way it deserves," said Ashley Kvamme.
