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.

Espadín. That word means “sword” in Spanish because the leaves look like a mass of swords projecting out of the plant. Espadín Mezcals are most common because it has been the easiest agave to cultivate.
While Mezcal is produced all across Mexico, most of the Mezcal we see is produced in the state of Oaxaca. Interestingly, over 70% of Mezcal is made from the Espadín agave—even though more than 20 types of agave are used to make Mezcal.
All Tequila is Mezcal, but not all Mezcal is Tequila.
