It is impossible to be more authentic than this — Mezcal Vago Espadín de Emigdio.
Mezcal Vago was founded by long-time friends Judah Kuper and Dylan Sloan with the help of Judah’s father-in-law, Aquilino Garcia Lopez who serves as head Mescalero. They exported their first bottles to Texas in 2013 and have worked hard to build a sustainable operation focused on small farm operators. In 2018 they partnered with Samson & Surrey — an established Spirits distributor in America to gain access to more markets in the US. They have expanded their line of small batch, authentic Mezcal across four family producers with more to come.
Mezcal Vago loves to work with small village and farm producers. And when they do, they make sure to give credit where credit is due. Emigdio Jarquín Ramirez distills artisan Spirits outside of Miahuatlán de Porfirio Diaz — a small town about sixty miles south of Oaxaca. He and his family have been perfecting their technique for decades. Mezcal Vago Espadín de Emigdio is a rich and authentic example of Emigdio’s craft. It is produced by hand from local Espadín agave that has been slow roasted and naturally fermented and combined with natural mineral water. Since each bottle is hand crafted, this Joven gem is bottled at "about" 50% ABV.

Viva Mexico, viva Agave, viva Mezcal!
Forget the worm, forget all that "Tequila’s smoky cousin" crap. Real Mezcal is smoky but infinitely more complex with flavors that span fruity, mineral, vegetal, and more. The best Mezcals reflect their maker’s distinct philosophies and the terroir that produced them - in cooperation with our friends from Mezcalistas, we have selected some really distinct bottles to get you started - and they’re guaranteed to get all those silly ideas about worms, smoke, and Mexican stereotypes out of your head because these are true sippers to rival any Spirit in the world.
