Life is a funny thing – sometimes you’re having fun and other times not so much but, in the end, we’re all going to "fall off the horse".

We know it, you know it and Federico Lorca knew it when he wrote The Horseman’s song where a horseman is Lejana Y Sola – far away and alone – knowing he will expire before he reaches his destination. The folks at Lejana Y Sola were inspired by the poem and thought, you know what, life does have an expiration date but there’s nothing like an artisanally-made Mezcal, made the old fashioned way, to help you focus on the present and just enjoy whatever it offers you in the moment. Carpe Diem, right?

Leyana Y Sola Mezcal is made with ancient methods without using any electricity. It’s an intriguing blend of Espadin agave and the rare and wild Cuishe agave that get roasted in a stone-lined fire pit over oak before being crushed by a horse-drawn tahona and fermented in wooden tanks. It's double distilled in copper alembic – ancient pot stills used since 2000 BC – at a small family-owned Palenque in the mountainous city of Lachilá, 2 hours from Oaxaca City. You can tell that at Leyana Y Sola, they really put the passion in their work ‘cuz that flavor is indescribable – very faint smoke is perfectly balanced with sweet agave, spices, earthy, and musky flavors. And it drinks so smoothly, it’s almost dangerous. But hey, life is short, right? Don’t waste it on average-tasting Mezcal.

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.

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.

All Tequila is Mezcal, but not all Mezcal is Tequila.
