De Matachines Peñasco 750ML
De Matachines Peñasco 750ML
Introducing De Matachines Peñasco 750ML, an exquisite expression of Salmiana Crassispina agave from the rich terroirs of Peñasco, San Luis Potosi. Distilled at an ABV of 47.9%, each bottle encapsulates traditional craftsmanship—from brick oven and steam cooking to tahona crushing and fermentation in pine wood. The final distillation occurs in a clay pot, also known as a "campanilla" style still.
Batch Size: Exclusivity reigns, as only 235 bottles make up each batch.
Tasting Notes: Peñasco captivates the palate with its complexity, offering nuances of cinnamon, pepper, and other spicy tones. The aftertaste is eloquent yet ephemeral, lingering just long enough to make an impression before gracefully dissipating.
Historical Reference: The name "Matachines" is an homage to the ceremonial religious dancers that have graced Mexico since the 17th century. Some of these troupes have existed for centuries, keeping their sacred traditions alive.
Mission Statement: In the spirit of these ancient celebrations, we are committed to bringing you some of the finest spirits from small communities. Whether it's a toast for a small gathering or a grand celebration, let De Matachines Peñasco be your spirit of choice.
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.
