ZACATECAS, Mexico, June 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Kimo
, 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

sonicated, then rested in glass for 26 months.  The
limited edition release of 700 bottles will be offered in

Best In Class in 2017 by the American
Distilling Institute, competing against all other mezcals and

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

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.
