Kimo Sabe Mezcal launched the Kimo Sabe Mezcal Sacred Heritage Collection NFT. Available through a limited edition non-fungible token (NFT) offering, the endeavor represents a new era of bespoke, artisanal beverage craftsmanship and exemplifies Kimo Sabe’s dedication to tradition and innovation.
Every bottle of Kimo Sabe 6 Year Grand Reserve Añejo is one-of-a-kind, featuring hand-beaded designs based on spiritual visions from Huichol artisans. No two bottles out of the 1,888 available for purchase will be alike, and each bottle sold includes a Sacred Heritage Collection NFT. Once the NFTs have been minted and all 1,888 bottles distributed, there will not be another run of this uniquely aged mezcal, setting it apart from competitors. The combination of ancient craftsmanship and digital imagery represents the culmination of centuries of art, design, and culture.
Kimo Sabe developed this project in collaboration with the Huichol (Wixarika) people, the last nomadic tribe in the Americas, to provide the exceptional artistry of the Huichol people with a platform that pays tribute to their heritage. Their ‘kupuri’ or life force has been suffused throughout the design and production of these unique bottles and associated NFT offerings.
The bottles are hand-crafted and incorporate the tribe’s sacred iconography, honoring all life on earth with veneration for their trinity of the twin deer (which provides vision and guidance), corn (a form of nourishment), and peyote (a source of spiritual renewal). Each NFT shares similar themes, highlighting the unique artisans and traditions of the Huichol.
As part of this collaboration, proceeds from the sales — up to a million dollars if the NFT is fully subscribed — will directly fund assistance to the Huichol people.
Kimo Sabe Grand Reserve Añejo has been crafted from 100% agave, aged for six years in new American White Oak Casks in the rarified air of the High Bayou of Zacatecas. Like other Kimo Sabe products, the subtle smoke portfolio of the Grand Reserve Anejo allows aromas of agave fruit, oak, toffee, and crème brulee; provides a palate that is full of vanilla, brown sugar, and buttery caramel; and a gentle finish that closes with buttery vanilla toffee.
