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.

In 2019, Madre Mezcal tickled the fancy of our Members and won one of the 2020 Flaviar Awards!

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Madre Mezcal and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

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