Dixeebe Mezcal Tobalá 375 ml
Dixeebe Mezcal Tobalá 375 ml is an exquisite mezcal presented in a compact 375 ml bottle. Produced by Valentin Cortes in Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca, this mezcal showcases the exceptional qualities of maguey Tobalá (Agave potatorum).
The production process of Dixeebe Tobalá stays true to the brand's commitment to traditional craftsmanship. The maguey Tobalá is cooked in an underground pit oven, allowing the flavors to develop and intensify. It is then meticulously milled using a tahona, a traditional stone wheel, to extract the precious juices and fibers. The resulting mash is carefully double-distilled in copper stills, refining the mezcal and enhancing its unique characteristics.
With an alcohol content of 51% by volume, Dixeebe Mezcal Tobalá embodies the strength and complexity that mezcal enthusiasts seek. Its bold and distinct flavors are a testament to the careful selection and meticulous production techniques employed by Valentin Cortes.
Dixeebe Mezcal Tobalá was introduced internationally in March 2022, marking the brand's expansion beyond its home market. The smaller bottle size was designed to make premium mezcal more accessible to consumers, allowing them to savor the exceptional quality in a more convenient format.
- When experiencing Dixeebe Tobalá, one can expect a unique sensory journey. While it may differ from the typical fruit-forward Tobalá expressions, it offers an enchanting floral bouquet on the nose, accompanied by subtle notes of papaya.
- On the palate, the mezcal reveals an earthy and mineral character, interwoven with herbal nuances and a touch of peppercorns.
Dixeebe Mezcal Tobalá represents the culmination of Valentin Cortes' expertise and dedication to the craft. With limited editions released before its international launch, this mezcal embodies exclusivity and the pursuit of exceptional taste. Indulge in the captivating aromas and distinctive flavors of Dixeebe Mezcal Tobalá, and experience the essence of Oaxaca's mezcal tradition in every sip.

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.
