Exclusive, excellent, exuberant.

What happens when a bunch of childhood amigos from the metropolitan Mexico City wanders through Oaxaca and befriends an old-school Maestro Mezcalero whose family has been making Mezcal for five generations and there isn't a thing they wouldn't know about the art? Usually good stories, but in this case also Wahaka Mezcal.

These friends, it turns out, weren't just frolicking around in Southern Mexico. They were on a quest to learn as much as they can about the ancient craft of distilling and create something new. They made award-winning Spirits, supporting the community in the process. Every Mezcal is a product of its terroir and one can taste Oaxaca in every sip of this delicacy.

Wahaka Mezcal Tepeztate is made of, yes you guessed it, Agava Tepeztate, a very distinct plant that doesn't give a damn about deadlines or time itself. This rich yellow beauty takes quarter of a century to mature in the wild and Maestro Beto distills its juices three times before he's content and bottles them. It's an extremely limited production (less than 500 bottles) and its exclusivity is underlined by its pleasantly fruity and subtle flavor that makes it a proper treat.

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.
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.
