Collection: Cuishe

Introducing the Cuishe Collection, an exquisite assortment of artisanal mezcals that celebrate the captivating and rare agave Karwinskii, commonly known as Cuishe. Sourced from the diverse terroirs of Oaxaca and surrounding regions in Mexico, this collection highlights the unique flavor profile of the Cuishe agave and the time-honored traditions of mezcal production.

The Cuishe Collection features:

  1. Cuishe Joven: A vibrant and unaged mezcal that captures the essence of the Cuishe agave, boasting a fresh and vegetal bouquet with hints of citrus, green pepper, and subtle smokiness. Perfect for sipping neat or as the base for a range of mezcal cocktails.

  2. Cuishe Madurado: A refined mezcal that can rest and mature in stainless steel or glass containers for several months, resulting in a more mellow and rounded character. The aging process enhances the distinct Cuishe agave notes while adding a touch of smoothness and complexity.

  3. Cuishe Reposado: Skillfully aged in oak barrels for up to a year, this mezcal boasts a beautiful amber hue and a rich, warm flavor profile. The oak imparts notes of caramel, vanilla, and baking spices, complementing the earthy and mineral qualities of the Cuishe agave.

  4. Cuishe Ensamble: A masterful blend of mezcals distilled from Cuishe and other agave varieties, this ensemble creates a symphony of flavors, with each agave's unique characteristics harmonizing and accentuating one another for a multi-layered and unforgettable experience.

  5. Cuishe Tobalá Blend: A rare and delightful union of the wild Cuishe and Tobalá agaves, this mezcal offers an intriguing interplay of flavors. The Cuishe's herbal and earthy notes are beautifully balanced by the Tobalá's delicate floral and fruity essence, resulting in a truly extraordinary spirit.
