A pure Oaxaca classic.
From the colorful paradise that is Oaxaca comes a delicate Mezcal with a delicate taste of wood smoke and green pepper. It's made from pure espadin agave that grows in Santiago Matatlán. this particular agave was harvested ten years ago under a new moon. Then they roasted underground for five days, crushed and fermented up to twelve days. A lot of work, but it pays off!
Fidencio Mezcal is brewed with four generations of knowledge. Fidencio Jimenez, the namesake of this bottle, started making Mezcal over a century ago when he moved to Oaxaca. He used clay pots for fermentation and distillation, and reeds for tubing.
Fidencio Clásico is the base for all the other mezcals Fabrica de Amigo del Mezcal produces. It's distilled twice through a traditional still, which gives it an aroma of herbs, smoke and pepper. Also, there's a secret: they put a chicken breast inside the cap of the still to round out the flavors! Although it's not a secret anymore, is it? Keep this one to yourself.
