A traditional Espadin Mezcal with deep family roots.
The Quad Cities area is a region of the midwest, south of Chicago where Iowa and Illinois meet. Rob Diaz grew up here when his family immigrated from Mexico in the 1950s. As a big fan of agave Spirits, he set out to reconnect with his heritage Spirit through Mezcal — his extended family is still in the business back in Mexico. He has just come out with a full range of premium Mezcal and a tasty coffee-infused version using beans from his brother’s business — Dark Matter Coffee. And each bottle is labeled with an historic family photo because for Rob, family is #1.
Diaz Brothers Agave Espadin is an artisanal Spirit that — as the name implies — is made from 100% Espadin agave from the Santiago Matalan district of Oaxaca. The craftsman behind this Spirit is Carlos Mendez Bias who grinds every piña with a horse-drawn stone mill and makes every drop on his wood-fired copper pot still. The authentic cactus dram is bottled at a very nice 46% ABV. And this fine Mezcal is issued is strictly limited releases — Release #1 is only 720 bottles.
