Dixeebe Mezcal Espadín 375 ml
Dixeebe Espadín Mezcal is a captivating mezcal offering presented in a 375 ml bottle. Crafted by Valentin Cortes in Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca, this mezcal exemplifies the exceptional qualities of maguey espadin (Agave angustifolia).
The production process of Dixeebe Espadín Mezcal stays true to the brand's commitment to traditional craftsmanship. The maguey espadin is carefully cultivated and harvested, ensuring optimal flavor development. It is then cooked in an underground pit oven, allowing the flavors to evolve and intensify. The cooked maguey is milled using a tahona, a traditional stone wheel, extracting the precious juices and fibers. The resulting mash is meticulously double distilled in copper stills, a method that further refines the mezcal and enhances its unique characteristics.
Dixeebe launched internationally in March 2022, with a vision to make premium mezcal more accessible to a wider audience. The decision to offer their mezcal in smaller bottle sizes allows enthusiasts to indulge in the exceptional quality and craftsmanship of their spirits in a more convenient format.

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.
