Why we like it

Madre’s varietal Espadin is sourced from multiple villages across Oaxaca, each chosen for its unique and distinct site-driven profile. The Mezcals are then blended to allow Espadin’s full spectrum of flavour to shine through. The heart of the blend comes from the palenque of Carlos Blas, based in Matatlán, whose family started making Mezcal in the 1930s. Carlos works with several growers in the region, and his artisanal distillery honours the traditional methods practiced in the area for centuries. Yet, from wherever the Espadin is sourced, Madre pays top dollar for only the ripest and highest quality juice available.

Bottled in recycled glass, it’s a smooth yet intense Mezcal, artfully balancing Espadin’s natural depth of herbal and citrus flavors with a lingering, delicately smoky, earth-scented finish. The palate is succulent, balanced and mouth-filling, so while it sips beautifully on its own, it also works beautifully in an upscaled version of tequila-based cocktails.

“There’s a ripe, rich fruitiness to this 100% espadin mezcal that makes it a fun swap for classic cocktails, like a Jack Rose or a boozy, stirred Negroni. Clocking in at an easy 40% ABV, it’s also a great gateway for the uninitiated” Masterful Mezcals, Amy Zavatto, New York Post
