The agave Espadín (agave angustifolia) grows all along the Mezcalero Strip in Oaxaca. It is the agave that grows the fastest and which is the most efficient in producing mezcal -10 kg of agave yield 1 liter of mezcal. We cultivate almost 100% of the Espadín mezcal we use. There are a vast array of agaves Espadín and the flavors of the mezcal made from these plants vary depending on the style of each maestro mezcalero and of the earth they grew on. San Luis Amatlán—where we grow our agave Espadín—is famous for its agave-growing terroir. As a result, our mezcal Espadín successfully combines the exceptionally good earth with the practiced hand of our maestro mezcalero.
Green fresh aromas dominate, followed by anise and subtle smoky notes. Bright green herbal flavors continue on the palate, into a smooth medium-long finish.
