The big Mezcal three: bright, earthy, and smoky.

Madre Mezcal is a handmade, artisanal Mezcal that's produced by various small batch mezcaleros in Oaxaca, Mexico. This is a truly personal and unique Mezcal as the mezcaleros work together day in, day out, in open air palanques in the rural hills of Oaxaca to create the Spirit following traditional Zapotec recipes and methods. The Madre recipe was designed by mixing an ensemble of agave to give a softer, lighter smoke and a sweet botanical hue.

Madre Mezcal Espadin is everything we’re looking for in a Mezcal. The Espadin agaves come from various terroirs, making it intriguingly complex and balanced. It’s made with local water and only natural yeast in open air palanques. And it’s got the big three: it’s bright, earthy, and just the right amount of smoky. You can enjoy it as a great light sipper or even better, impress your friends by making upscaled cocktails – like a Mezcal Margarita.

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.
