The people who make Montelobos Mezcal Espadín Joven recommend the following pairing...
"Mexico has a long history of drinking agave-based spirits with homemade salts and seasonal fruits - to enhance certain flavors in the spirit. This custom owes itself to Mexicans' deep connection to food and celebration. Our Custom Salt Serve is a true homage to the traditional pairing of orange slices and chile salt - the perfect fusion of our regional cuisine and the unique terroir of our spirit.
Montelobos Espadin was created in the pursuit of showcasing the most complex, but perfect balance between the four basic flavor profiles in artisanal mezcal: green agave, cooked agave, smoke and wild fermentation. These artisan salts highlight 2 of our 4 flavor profiles; green agave and smoke. We have chosen the perfect pairing: Pair the avocado salt with green or yellow tomatoes while you slowly sip Montelobos Espadin. This will enhance the herbaceous green agave notes of wilderness and fresh cut grass.
Pair the hibiscus salt with red tomatoes while you slowly sip Montelobos Espadin. This will enhance the earthy, ashy and firewood smoke notes."
