A beautiful, hand-made Espadin Mezcal with a lovely perfume and fruity palate.

If you ask Aquilino García López when his family started making Mezcal, he is likely to tell you five generations. Time moves slowly in the hill country of Oaxaca where he and his son tend their farm of Espadín agave and work the still themselves (palenque). Until a few years ago, all of the Mezcal they made was sold locally. And you just can’t serve a bad product when you see your customers in church every Sunday.

Mezcal Vago Espadin Jarquin is “joven,” which means “young” in Spanish. So this is an un-aged Spirit. But there is plenty of flavor. Espadin agave is famous for being a blank canvas that highlights the terroir and skill of the maker. And in this case, we are talking about a completely hand-made Mezcal. So much so that each production run can have a slightly different proof. The most recent batch we tasted was 51.2% ABV, but we’ve had slightly strong and weaker bottles with all of them being over 50%. Everything about this Mexican dram screams bespoke authenticity.

Smartass corner:
Espadin is the most popular agave for Mezcal in Oaxaca. It is considered an ancestor of the Blue Weber agave used for Tequila, but has a higher sugar content and ferments naturally with local, air-born yeasts.
