A brilliant Joven Mezcal from Oaxaca with a distinct, regional flavor worth the effort.

Mezcales de Leyendas was founded for a singular purpose — to find a wide, diverse range of Mezcal styles and bring them to the world. They started as a single boutique in 2005 — the only establishment focused exclusively on artisanal Mezcal in Mexico City. In 2007 the opened a similar bar in New York called "Hecho en Dumbo." From there it was a small step to acquiring and independently bottling the Mexican Spirits they love. They have built their line-up to include six regional Mezcal varieties and several special editions.

For Mezcales de Leyendas Oaxaca they traveled to the hills above San Juan del Rio in the heart of Oaxaca. There they found master mezcalero Saul Martinez making Espadin Mezcal from a local sub-variety of agave called Angustifolia. It is slow roasted for three days, pressed traditionally using a stone tahona, naturally fermented for three more days, and double-distilled in copper pot stills. This Joven (Blanco) Mezcal is bottled un-aged at 42% ABV.
