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.

All Tequila is Mezcal, but not all Mezcal is Tequila.
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.
