Traditional Oaxaca Mezcal in the Zapotec tradition.

Just outside San Dionisio, the ancient Oaxacan town surrounded by clean air and water, the creative team behind Madre found a family of mezcaleros and decided to produce a truly personal and unique Mezcal. The Morales family works together day in, day out, to create the Spirit following traditional Zapotec recipes and methods. Jose, his father and his brothers cut the Agave plants, while his mother blesses them with sage before cooking them in the earth. His wife plants new Agaves and a gaggle of uncles keeps an eye on the distillation process. The Madre recipe was designed by mixing an ensemble of agave to give a softer, lighter smoke and a sweet botanical hue.

Madre Mezcal, an artisanal Spirit handmade in the valley of Oaxaca, is made with Agave Espadin and Agave Cuishe. Jose Garcia Morales and his folks roast them in an earthen pit and use wild yeast for fermentation. Family’s ancient copper still produces a unique Spirit with lovely Agave flavors and aromas, accompanied by warm and peppery notes. It’s a fantastic place to start your Mezcal journey with its approachable flavor profile.

I usually go with Tequila, but boy was I happy when I tried this bottle out :) Worth every peso

Tim,
This is my first mezcal and while I don’t have anything to compare it to, I must say that I’m a fan. This is nice and smoky and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I drank it neat, but plan on trying it in a cocktail too.

Erin,
This was my first mezcal. It was a pleasant surprise. I’m not sure I’ll keep mezcal in my cabinet but I don’t regret trying it.

Kate,
This is my first experience with Mezcal and it is good. I like it with one ice cube and brings the smokiness down to a level that is good for me. It is, however, very smokey....it is smooth tho.

This is an outstanding mezcal with a broad spectrum of aromas, flavors with just the right touch of sweetness in the finish.

Roasted agave. Peppery, sweet, salty, oily finish. Not bad, but not my favorite.

This is a delightful mezcal. Complex fruits on the tongue with just enough smoke and very smooth finish.

Antti,
It is an outstanding, elegant, Espadin Cuishe Ensamble Mezcal that has an aromatic birth; while a rich & balanced life leads to a long & warm death.

Smooth light smoky nose, a little sweet on the tongue with a clean finish.

Had some of this at the Flaviar tasting event, and it is excellent. Subtle smoke with lots of character and flavor. I'll be ordering a bottle...
 
Frederic
Frederic,
I usually drink whisky. Mezcal flavor profile has so many similitudes, especially because of the smoke. In my view, this mezcal tops them all. Sip this straight up and enjoy the ride...

Chris,
Super smooth ensamble mezcal, with enough smoke but not too much. Slightly sweet finish and pleasant on the throat.
