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.

Shane
Shane,
Loved it. It’s got a great smoky tequila style flavor. It’s for when your buddy comes over and you start the night off with a shot and belt out a Rick Flair style “WHOOOOOOO!”

Aaron,
The smoke is really nice! I had it in a bloody maria this morning and the smoke complimented the spiciness from the mix.

Smoky. makes an excellent paloma!

Chris,
Loved this stuff! Made a margarita with some blanco and some of this stuff. Added a nice little something "extra" that elevated the cocktail.

Kevin,
Definitely not my favorite Mezcal. Leaves an unbearable after taste of burnt rubber.

Chase,
Good smoke to price ratio. comparisons to liquid smoke are greatly exaggerated. This might become one of the standards stocked in my bar depending on its availability. Alipus is also a good choice. Those that complain of smokiness, the more mellow ones tend to fetch a higher price. If you didn’t come for the smoke, what did you come for? If smoke is a problem, you may want to try its more popular cousin. Tequila. I recommended a rested one. No smoke, all flavor.

To Smokey if you cook with liquid smoke and like to drink it than this is for you

Alfred,
Other reviews accurate. Very smokey. Straight up, tough for my palate. Very strong and no more than a couple of sips. On ice with some lime, drinkable. Depends on your taste preference. Could be very good, could be a disappointment.

I had not tried mezcal before. Taste was great! Vanilla was there, American whiskey.

Not usually a Tequila or Mezcal fan but this is very smooth and sweet and goes very well with spicy mixtures.

Not my favorite mezcal but not a bad one. Very heavy smoke and agave flavor. Some salt and sweetness in the back. Glad I tried it.

Alexa,
Smoky vanilla - I’m not a fan of smoky alcohol but I was surprisingly pleased by this flavor. Good straight or mixes well with orange bitters, agave, and club soda.

See prior review, it didn't register my star rating the first time!

Very smoky - would say it was the predominant flavor. I liked the warming sensation at the back of this but overall was not a favorite.
