A lively and powerful Espadin Mezcal at the heart of the Erstwhile line-up.

Brooklyn-based Erstwhile Mezcal was founded in 2017 by Yuan Ji — an antitrust lawyer with a longstanding interest in social entrepreneurship and commitment to pro bono service — and Kevin J. Brown, a purveyor of antiquarian maps. They share a passion for the small batch production of exemplary Mezcal still produced in the tiny villages and family farms of central Mexico. Their mission is to discover, curate, and connect these fine Spirits with fellow lovers of the agave arts.

Erstwhile Espadin Mezcal is the central core Spirit for Erstwhile Mezcal. It was also their first product to be exported and bottled under their brand. It is distilled by Master Mezcalero Silverio Garcia Luis at Rancho Blanco Güilá near Santiago Matatlán in a copper alembic still. Like all Erstwhile Mezcals, it was naturally fermented in open-air wooden vats. The resulting Spirit is lively with notes exotic fruit and tea, all bottled up at a powerful 49% ABV.

Smartass Corner: 
Espadin agave (agave augustifolia) is the most common varietal used in Mezcal. Not only does it provide a great canvas for the Master Mezcalero to display his talents, it is adapted to cultivation and matures relatively quickly in five to seven years.
