A delicious, hand-crafted Espadin Mezcal with surprising notes of melon, black pepper, and smoke.

A proudly 100% Oaxacan Mezcal, Mezcal Nucano was born when two young Oaxacans who loved their homeland, culture, and tradition wondered why this delicious agave drink doesn't get the worldwide fame it deserves. Why isn’t the whole world drinking Mezcal? And so came to be Nucano, produced by local maestro mezcaleros. While giving back to the local community, the brand offers authentic artisanal Mezcal for the rest of the world to enjoy. The entire value chain – production, suppliers, administration – takes place in Oaxaca.

When it comes to fine Mezcal, the details matter. Nucano Mezcal Espadín Joven is 100% Espadin agave from San Dionisio Ocotepec in the middle of Oaxaca. The agave are given eight years to mature in the field before hand-harvesting. They piñas are slow roasted in a conical earthen oven and crushed by horse-drawn stone tahona. The pulp is naturally fermented in oak vats and double-distilled in a copper pot over direct wood fire. This Joven Mezcal is un-aged and bottled at 45% ABV.

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.
