El Silenico Mezcal Espadin, Oaxaca Mexico 200 ml
Madre Mezcal hails from the tiny village of San Dionisio Ocotepec. In between Chichicapam and Matatlan, the village is in the heart of Mezcal country. The Garcia Morales family has been growing agave for generations here and they make one of the most balanced and inviting mezcals we've ever come across. A blend of estate grown Espadin and wild harvest Cuishe, the agave is cooked for days over pine. After being pressed in the traditional tahona, the juice is fermented naturally over the course of nearly two weeks and distilled twice in copper potstills. Distiller José Ines Garcia Morales began with the mission of providing his friends and family with the vehicle for personal guidance and celebration, and we're happy to go on that journey with him.
