De Matachines Ahualulco 750ML
Unveiling De Matachines Ahualulco 750ML, a unique blend of Salmiana Crassispina agave sourced from Ahualulco, San Luis Potosi. With a higher ABV of 49%, this spirit celebrates tradition, from its brick oven and steam cooking to tahona crushing and fermentation in stainless steel vessels. The distillation is carried out in a copper/stainless still, solidifying its commitment to quality.
Batch Size: Craftsmanship is our focus, reflected in the limited batch size of 351 bottles.
Tasting Notes: Ahualulco stands out for its crisp, straightforward flavor profile. The dominant note is pepper—some experience the bite of jalapeño, while others sense the mild zest of green bell pepper. This is a more "traditional" salmiana profile, exceptionally rich and expressive in this particular version.
Historical Reference: The name "Matachines" pays tribute to the religious dancers who have been a cultural mainstay in Mexico since the 17th century. Some troupes have existed for centuries, preserving their sacred rituals.
Mission Statement: In line with these traditions of ceremonial significance, we are devoted to bringing you exceptional spirits from small communities, perfect for any occasion you may celebrate.
Salud! Maestro Martin Hernandez

What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?
Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.
Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.
One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.
Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.
In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
