An artisanal 100% Espadín agave mezcal from Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca, México. Spicy, fruity with notes of citrus and a hint of smoke. Smooth and warming to the palate, with a clean and fruit-driven finish. Perfect in your favorite cocktail or served neat.
In the mountains near San Juan and San Luis del Rio near Oaxaca, we harvest Espadín agave at elevations up to 8,000 feet. We believe that elevation is key and have found the higher we go in the Sierra, the more elegant the resultant spirit.
